Feature Film Online: Maintenance

Exposed! What people do in the privacy of their very own homes is put on display for all to see in Adele Horne’s very dirty movie, Maintenance. Horne’s subjects do it all: Scrubbing, dusting, sweeping, mopping. No, those aren’t euphemisms. Maintenance exposes the private act of cleaning in an entirely engrossing way.
