The Maintenance Project | 1988

(1988) video, colour, 17 minutes

In the 1980's, one local council, Rochdale, began to solve its' housing problems not by demolition and new-build but by careful restoration of existing terraced housing. Against this background the film shows the work of the then housing officer,Frank Braganza, as he puts into practice a new scheme to initiate tenants into the mysteries of DIY.and preventative maintenance.
