Director Statement

"Monday to Friday Person" is a surreal take on the housing situation in Dublin; spiralling uncontrolled rents, unsuitable living conditions, and landlords who expect tenants to be just human enough to be capable of a bank transfer, but not human enough to expect to live in their own homes.

We meet the Interviewee, a Young Professional looking for a place to hang his hat, and the Interviewer, a disgruntled first time landlord who is not happy about renting out what little space she has left in her overpriced home.
