Still from "Heart of a Dog"

Heart of a Dog with Laurie Anderson Q&A

“Every love story is a ghost story,” wrote David Foster Wallace, referenced by Laurie Anderson in her film Heart of a Dog. This cinematic rumination on loss—9/11, her mother, her terrier, her husband Lou Reed— is presented through lilting personal stories and poetic footage. (2015, dir. Laurie Anderson, HD, color/b&w, 75 min.)

A Q&A with Laurie Anderson follows the screening.
