Heart of a Dog

Directed by Laurie Anderson
United States, 2015


A cinematic tone poem that flows from a sustained meditation on death and other forms of absence, then seamlessly weaves together thoughts on Tibetan Buddhism, reincarnation, the modern surveillance state, and the artistic lives of dogs, all in elegy for Anderson’s beloved rat terrier, Lolabelle.
