Jonathan and Elan Bogarin, siblings and documentarians, have fond childhood memories from their weekly visits to the Newark home of their late grandmother, Annette. Upon their grandmother’s passing, the siblings are left to navigate her absence, as they rediscover Annette through the home and artifacts she left behind.

Jonathan and Elan give themselves eleven months to excavate and archive the contents of 306 Hollywood in an unusual experiment in memory, mourning, and the meaning of life. With whimsical cinematography, a splash of magical realism, and its Burton-esque score, 306 HOLLYWOOD is both a moving testament to the love the Bogarin siblings shared for their grandmother and a potent case for the value in documenting ordinary lives.

Reviews:

  • “One of the more universal and relatable films you’re ever likely to see. It’s such a little story you may wonder why it’s being told at all, except that it’s a story likely to touch anybody who has ever lost a loved one, which makes it a very big story.” (Daniel Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter)
  • “The movie’s blend of charm and philosophical inquiry makes it at once structurally daring and a total crowd-pleaser.” (Eric Kohn, Indiewire)
  • “Part biopic, part magical-realist rumination, the two [filmmakers] offer the genre a new format and the ordinary a beautiful homage.” (DeAnne Janes, Harper’s Bazaar)
  • 306 Hollywood honors the ordinary. In memories, a day is reduced to a photograph. In history, a time period is defined by the powerful. And in our present day, an ordinary woman like Annette would be forgotten. The Bogarins’ film succeeds in making us celebrate Annette’s existence.” (Peter Debruge, Variety)
