Laurie Anderson

Defying most recognizable genre conventions, Heart of a Dog offers experimental performance artist Laurie Anderson’s attempts to deal with the death of her pet dog. At once a eulogy and a pioneering exploration into our relationship with animals, Anderson’s film is incredibly personal yet wholly universal in its emotional quest. Blending drawings with animation, archival footage and newly shot material, Heart of a Dog is a visual poem brimming with honesty, love and profound lyricism. Venice Film Festival, In Competition.
