306 Hollywood (with short film All For This)
With boundless creativity and an irrepressible bouncing 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 house306 Hollywood Avenue in Hillside, New Jersey. 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. By turns elegiac, celebratory, and edgy, with extrapolations ranging from the Rockefellers to Rome, 306 Hollywood moves unexpectedly but inevitably, like a beautiful murmuration of birds. It remains intellectually adventurous while playfully peeking into odd corners and exploring shifts in scale. With a lovely familial touch and a fresh musical score, it is also a crazy smart fun watch. Acclaimed at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and winner of the International Director Award at HotDocs, the film marks the return to LIFF of co-directors Elan and Jonathan Bogarin, who produced the 2009 LIFF Opening Film Big Fan.
Expected to Attend: Co-director Elan Bogarin.
The feature will be preceded by the short film "All For This": Melissa finds her voice by invoking early blues women.
