The Cleveland Print Room is proud to be a Community Partner of the 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival. We are supporting 306 Hollywood, a Hungarian film directed by Jonathan Bogarín and Elan Bogarín.
From the CIFF website:
“When you lose someone you love, you start to look for new ways to understand the world.” That’s one conclusion reached by Elan Bogarín as she and her brother Jonathan sift through the items left behind after the death of their beloved grandmother. In fact, 306 HOLLYWOOD follows the siblings as they embark on an archaeological dig of the cozy New Jersey home where the irrepressible fashion designer Annette Ontell lived for 71 years. By chronicling cherished ephemera—gorgeous homemade dresses, cameras, vacuum cleaners, and a well-worn address book—the family attempts to understand how Annette’s spiritual presence lives on. To mitigate the gravity of this task, 306 HOLLYWOOD incorporates instances of “normalized magic,” a filmmaking approach where hints of surreal fantasy infiltrate reality, and actual footage of the Bogaríns’ charismatic grandmother. Annette’s larger-than-life personality (and charming pearls of wisdom) adds poignancy to the film and illuminates why her grandchildren are so driven to preserve her memory. —A.Z.
