When siblings Elan and Jonathan Bogarín lose their grandma, they face a profound question: When a loved one dies, what should we do with everything they left behind? Turning documentary on its head, the Bogaríns embark on a magical-realist journey that transforms Grandma’s cluttered New Jersey home into a visually exquisite ruin where tchotchkes become artifacts, and the siblings become archaeologists. With help from physicists, curators, and archivists, they excavate the extraordinary universe contained in a family home. 306 HOLLYWOOD transforms the dusty fragments of an unassuming life into an epic metaphor for the nature of memory, time, and history.
“In the world of documentaries, it is bold, if not a landmark.” ~ ROGER EBERT / Nick Allen
“306 HOLLYWOOD feels… like 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.” ~ THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER / Daniel Feinberg
