  1. Trailer

An impressionistic and musical meditation on a pets death with prelude by the artist Laurie Anderson, who enjoyed a very deep relationship with her dog, with following soundtrack.

The film centers on her remembrances of her late beloved piano-playing and finger-painting dog Lolabelle. Scenes range from realistic footage from the animal's life to imagined scenes of Lolabelle’s passage through the bardo (according to Tibetan tradition, refers to the state of existence intermediate between two lives on earth). It also includes other reflections on life and death including Anderson's experiences in life in downtown New York after 9/11.

"Haunting and celebratory at once, HEART OF A DOG ultimately amounts to a contemplation of mortality."
Eric Kohn - INDIEWIRE

"HEART OF A DOG is that rarest of pieces, an unabashedly experimental work that's as inviting as a visit with an old friend, one who may not always make sense, who's sometimes goofy, but has been through a lot lately and treasures the opportunity to artfully unload."
Robert Abele - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"It sounds sentimental, icky, even, but Heart of a Dog sparkles with its creator's wisdom and droll philosophical insight."
Michael Phillips - CHICAGO TRIBUNE
