Night Out in Killashandra [Lina Jalala, Ireland, 2018]

Night Out in Killashandra is a whip-smart take on the modern world of dating and the ways in which young people meet (or, in this case, don't meet) in the tech-savvy and social media obsessed Information Age.

The film invites us to join three young women on a night out (in Killashandra obvs!), huddled around a smartphone and ‘swiping’ their way through a dating app and weighing up their options. The camera swipes right to a group of three potential male suiters who are responding to the girls via the same app. Perhaps, this could be the fortuitous spark of a modern romance…
