Melding 8mm home movies, animation and an original soundtrack, Laurie Anderson's new film fleshes out an intimate, ruminative look at crossing over.
A Dog’s Life — And Death
BY M. BRIANNA STALLINGS
Like few others, artist Laurie Anderson has experience with a vast array of media and creative genres. Like everyone, Anderson also has experience with the challenging arena of death. Her new documentary “Heart of a Dog” examines a series of losses — including her beloved terrier Lolabelle; her mother; and and her husband, musician Lou Reed — that deeply affected the artist over the past several years. Melding 8mm home movies, animation and an original soundtrack, the film fleshes out an intimate, ruminative look at crossing over. “Heart of a Dog” screened in mid-December at the Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE), and the critical darling returns for daily encores from Feb. 2-4 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets range from $5 to $8.
