About the Film
After their beloved grandmother Annette dies, siblings Elan and Jonathan Bogarín inherit the home where she lived for more than seven decades, located at 306 Hollywood in Newark, New Jersey. Sensing Annette’s presence in all that she left behind, the duo begin a wildly creative archaeological excavation of the house and its contents, from dresses to dentures, vacuums to canned goods. The result is a singular—and utterly charming—project, a whimsical magical-realist documentary that serves as a loving celebration of an ordinary life.
