Multi-disciplinary artist Laurie Anderson has long been a creative pioneer in music, film and live performance. In her first feature film in thirty years, she takes us on an unforgettable cinematic journey through the nature of love, loss and absence. Centered on Anderson’s beloved dog Lolabelle, who died in 2011, and dedicated to her late husband Lou Reed, Heart of a Dogseamlessly weaves together childhood memories, video diaries, and philosophical musings on the meaning(s) of life. Narrated by the filmmaker with her characteristic wry wit, this sweeping and heartfelt personal essay continues Anderson’s trailblazing career of imbuing the everyday with a sense of dreamlike wonder.
