MAINTENANCE
Dir. Adele Horne // 91 min // 2012

Cleaning house is one of the most private things we do in our homes, other than sex and arguments. Although the product of of a clean home is socially valued, the work required to achieve it is not. This film bears witness to the invisible labor that makes up a huge part of our lives, in a series of portraits of people cleaning. MAINTENANCE was the recipient of the 2013 Images Prize, the top award at Toronto’s IMAGES festival.
