Laurie Anderson

Heart of a Dog

Plus Q&A with Laurie Anderson (2015, USA, cert. 12a)

Directed by Laurie Anderson

Visually rich and poetic, Laurie Anderson's Oscar-nominated Heart of a Dog sees her reflect on love, language and death – inspired by the affection she had for pet rat terrier, Lolabelle, who died in 2011. Essayistic in style, and constructed like a collage of original musical compositions, contemporary footage, narration, animation and 8mm home movies, it deftly flits between the serious and the playful, the funny and heartfelt.
