“Hello, little bonehead. I'll love you forever.” So begins Heart of a Dog, from writer, director and creative pioneer Laurie Anderson (Home of the Brave). Centering on Anderson's beloved piano-playing and finger-painting rat terrier Lolabelle, who died in 2011, Heart of a Dog is a wry, wondrous and unforgettable cinematic journey through love, death and language. Her personal essay weaves together childhood memories; video diaries; philosophical musings on data collection, surveillance culture and the Buddhist conception of the afterlife; as well as heartfelt tributes to the artists, writers, musicians and thinkers who inspire her. Fusing her own witty, inquisitive narration with original violin compositions, hand-drawn animation, 8mm home movies and artwork culled from exhibitions past and present, Anderson creates a hypnotic, collage-like visual language out of the raw materials of her life and art, examining how stories are constructed and told—and how we use them to make sense of our lives.
