After their grandmother Annette passes away in 2011, filmmakers and siblings Elan and Jonathan Bogarín undertake the task of exploring Annette’s life by excavating her home, located at 306 Hollywood in Newark, NJ. But how do you reconstruct a singular life from the objects and memories left behind? And what truths can be learned about the nature of existence and the human experience? 306 HOLLYWOOD is a magical realist documentary that transforms the dusty fragments of an unassuming life into a wondrous, epic metaphor for the nature of time, memory, and history.
Q&A with directors Elan Bogarín and Jonathan Bogarín to follow both screenings.
