So this is christmas new ken wardrop film documentary

Beneath Every Tree There Is A Story

The latest documentary from award-winning Irish filmmaker Ken Wardrop (His & Hers). This thoughtful, emotional film looks at the lead-up to Christmas from the perspective of five different individuals and families from the Midlands - from a single mother trying to make ends meet, to an older woman facing the prospect of another Christmas alone.

Starring Laois locals - our friends and neighbours - all are welcome to come together this Christmas at your local Arts Centre, and share in some local stories, told by a wonderful Laois filmmaker, on the big screen at Dunamaise.

You’ll struggle to find a more moving and honest film about the realities of the festive season. Wardrop - with his trademark mix of empathy and warm humour - explores the emotional, financial and social challenges of Christmas. These stories are heartbreaking and tinged with tragedy, but the film also emphasises the moments of joy, kindness and resilience experienced on the way to Christmas Day.
