306 Hollywood (Film & Discussion)

With boundless creativity and irrepressible energy, 306 Hollywood memorializes and honors the life of the filmmakers’ grandmother, Annette Ontell. Housewife, fashion designer, and beloved family member, Ontell lived seven decades in the same house — 306 Hollywood Avenue in Hillside, NJ. Ultimately a profound reflection on how we examine and deal with the past, the film can also be viewed as a quirky instruction manual on how to live in the present. 306 Hollywood remains intellectually adventurous while playfully peeking into odd corners and exploring shifts in scale. Film is followed by discussion with filmmakers Elan and John Bogarin.
