When a loved one dies, what do we do with everything they left behind? Turning documentary on its head, Elan and Jonathan Bogarín embark on a magical-realist journey that converts Grandma’s cluttered New Jersey home into a visually exquisite ruin, elevating tchotchkes into valuable artifacts. With help from physicists, curators, and archivists, the siblings become archaeologists as they excavate the extraordinary time capsule packed into every corner of grandma’s modest suburban home.
“When you lose someone you love, you start to look for new ways to understand the world.”
306 HOLLYWOOD is a fantastical family narrative that bridges life’s ordinary and mundane fragments with the grander histories of the Rockefellers and citizens of Rome. The duo transforms their loss into an extraordinary creative homage, incorporating physics, fantasy, and much humor. We imagine grandma must be very proud to have inspired this intergenerational love story.
