Cinema Tropical Presents “306 Hollywood” this Friday
A film by Elan and Jonathan Bogarín
USA, 2018, 94 min. In English
At 306 Hollywood Avenue in Newark, former dress designer Annette Ontell lived for 71 years in a nondescript white house. After her death in 2011, her grandchildren Elan and Jonathan were left with her belongings, from toothbrushes to tax documents.
Instead of throwing away this lifetime of detritus, Venezuelan-American filmmakers Elan and Jonathan began a meticulous process of cataloguing and archiving everything Annette left behind. The result is this magical documentary, an inspiring look at the extraordinary stories and histories hidden away in the everyday.
Opens Friday, September 28
34 West 13th Street (between Fifth and Sixth Aves.)
