“Thirty years after Home of the Brave, Laurie Anderson is back with another feature film, and the wait was well worth it. Her new film [HEART OF A DOG] – whose name refers to Lolabelle, Anderson’s beloved rat terrier who died in 2011 – is a personal essay that weaves together childhood memories, video diaries and philosophical musings alongside tributes to artists, musicians and thinkers. Fusing her own narration with original violin compositions, beautiful hand-drawn animation, 8mm home movies and artwork from her past and present exhibitions, the pioneering musician creates a hypnotic, collage-like visual language to examine how stories are constructed and told and how we use them to make sense of our lives.” – Jerusalem Cinematheque.
