“Ireland’s had a dance music culture but there’s a bit of a problem with late night venues closing – one of the places we shot in, District 8, got knocked down recently, I think Dublin needs to work out what it’s priorities are in terms of the seventy odd hotels going up at the moment which is grand but where are those people going to go out if all the venues have been knocked down?

“I love when I’m watching something and I feel like I’ve been put in somewhere, thrown in the deep end. I think you’ll see Dublin in a way you might not have, possibly not even if you’ve visited.”

‘Dublin Oldschool’ will screen at Paddington’s Chauvel Cinema on May 4 and Melbourne’s Kino Cinema on May 11 as part of the Irish Film Festival
