The Madelyn Helling Library has partnered with POV to offer engaging and thought-provoking documentaries free of charge to the community, according to a release.

POV (a cinema term for “point of view”) is television’s longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films. POV films are known for their intimacy, their unforgettable storytelling and their timeliness, putting a human face on contemporary social issues.

The next film, 306 Hollywood, will be screened at 4 p.m. May 10 at the Madelyn Helling Library in the Gene Albaugh Community Room. Embark on a magical-realist journey with filmmakers Elan and Jonathan Bogarin as they undertake an excavation of their late grandmother’s home.

In their search for her story, 306 Hollywood turns into an epic take — with plenty of humor, fantasy and drama — of what remains after life ends. Turning documentary on its head, the Bogarins discover who their grandmother really was, transforming her cluttered New Jersey home of 71 years into a visually exquisite ruin where tchotchkes become artifacts, and siblings become archaeologists.

This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS. For more information, go to
