Montana filmmaker Ian Frank shares stories from Philipsburg. Shot on 16mm anamorphic, "Art of Maintenance" delves into the transformative power of fixing broken things, including ourselves. Personal voicemails provide a window into my experience helping my grandfather maintain a family cabin on Rock Creek. The film seeks to portray a lifelong dedication to quality, emulating my grandparents' religious convictions and integrating “classic vs. romantic” worldviews on maintenance, artistry, and self-care.
