Laurie Anderson’s “Heart Of A Dog” Now Playing (Jan 2-13)

 

2015 has been a stellar year for cinema. With such a staggering amount of amazing films, the Digital Gym Cinema staff suspects that you’ve missed a few of them. We’re proud to present FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, a showcase featuring some of 2015’s most impressive, critically acclaimed, and soon to be nominated films that you may have been remiss in watching during their initial runs. Now it’s your time to catch up and be part of the conversation!

 

Artist Laurie Anderson reflects on the deaths of her husband, mother, beloved dog and subjects such as family memories, surveillance, and Buddhist teachings. Nominated: Best Documentary, Independent Spirit Award (2016); On the Best Documentary Shortlist for the 88th Academy Awards; Official Selection: Telluride Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival

 

Acclaimed musician and performance artist Laurie Anderson presents her meditation on love and death as relates to her dog in this playful, lucid and heartbreaking nonfiction feature. Dedicated to Anderson’s late husband Lou Reed (who floats almost unseen throughout), Heart Of A Dog takes as a jumping off point the recent passing of Anderson’s beloved terrier Lolabelle. Touching on what her love for her dog means to her by processing her childhood, music, and her life as an artist, Anderson draws upon her childhood experiences and political beliefs as she lovingly tries to help Lolabelle’s spirit face the immediate tribulations it will experience immediately after death. Aided by a beautiful use of her own compositions, animation and 8 millimeter film from her family archive, Anderson creates a gorgeous tapestry on love and loss – reminding us that every love story is a ghost story. 

Run Time: 75 minutes
