INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series: Nathaniel Mellors

Presented by: Nathaniel Mellors

Nathaniel Mellors opened this year’s INSIDE/OUT lecture series with a screening of his 2016 film Ourhouse, Ep.-1: Time (2016).d

The project is Mellors’ most ambitious film to date and takes place inside the ‘northern wing’ of the house, a Brutalist extension that uses Preston’s iconic bus station as its exterior façade. Populated by a tribe of smart Neanderthals and a filthy cluster of cannibalistic Homo sapiens, the film incorporates devices from prehistory as a means of exploring contemporary socio-economic and political issues, class, the objectification of the ‘other’ and our complex relationship with technology. Mellors’ Ourhouse works have featured an array of British acting talent and Ourhouse, Ep.-1: Time (2016) features Richard Bremmer, Johnny Vivash, Patrick Kennedy, David Birkin, Brian Catling, Benedict Hopper, Laura Dee Milnes, Honeysuckle Weeks, Adam Gillen, Christos Lawton, Daniel Hoffmann-Gill, Rachel Bostock, Dave Hughes and Josh Rea alongside local actors and production crew.

After the screening, Mellors discussed the making of the film and was happy to take questions from the audience.

This event was part of the INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series 2016/17 organised by Professor Simon Morris. For more information on the series visit
