This special screening programme at Ellie Harrison’s flat formed part of her and Oliver Braid’s three projects for Glasgow Open House Art Festival 2014, along with their two special radio broadcasts - Ellie & Oliver’s Long Distance Relationship.

Inspired by the Transition Town movement, which promotes co-production and communal living as ways to well-being and sustainability, Ellie Harrison opened the doors of her now ‘single person household’ for a screening programme of socio-political films. By inviting likeminded people into her hermetically sealed ‘luxury apartment’ to learn about and discuss ways to change the world - she hoped to expose the paradox at the heart of her lifestyle - test the intolerance caused by solo living and challenge her actually existing ‘socialism in one person’.
