Cinema Salon Presents Heart of a Dog
Thursday, March 30th, 2017
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Laurie Anderson’s reflective musing on matters of life and death revisits the Tibetan Book of the Dead via her relationship with her beloved dog Lolabelle and the lost mother whom she worries she did not love.
Animation and Super 8 footage lend personal texture to the documentary’s dreamy, healing fragments, with Anderson’s narration providing poetic perspective on childhood trauma, the nature of storytelling, the transience of life and the release of love.
The screening will be followed by a talk with Judith Price, a video artist, performance artist and educator, who will be speaking about the film and the art of Laurie Anderson.
