A DUBLIN CHRISTMAS CAROL - is a modern day retelling of Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. It is set in present-day Dublin, where homelessness is an ever-present scourge.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a fabulously wealthy property developer who despises the poor who clutter up the pavement outside his office. And Scrooge has no time for the celebrations that surround him on Christmas Eve, as the ghosts of his past, present & future come to pay him a visit that will forever change his life and his views on humanity. Indeed, A Dublin Christmas Carol challenges us all to reassess the way we view and treat our fellow human beings.
The opening scenes will be shoot and broadcast this Christmas as a short film, (see above) with the full movie being premiered at Christmas, 2021.

John Gorman talks about what he is most looking forward to with his part in A Dublin Christmas Carol
JOHN GORMAN is a forty year-old Dubliner who has lived on the streets of the capital most of his adult life. He met Kevin Flanagan, the producer of A DUBLIN CHRISTMAS CAROL while attending The Knights Run - a charity that offers medical aid, support and friendship to Dublin’s homeless community.
Kevin, a volunteer with The Knights Run, asked John to appear in the modern day retelling of Charles Dickens classic tale, set in present-day Dublin, where homelessness is an ever-present scourge.
John was delighted to accept and plays himself. His role is pivotal to the movie, as it shows Ebenezer Scrooge's journey from despising the homeless to regarding them as his brother and sister. All with a little help, of course, from the ghosts of his past, present & future!
