IN KINO VERITAS
Laurie Anderson is one of the world’s coolest musicians and artists, and American musician Lou Reed’s wife. Here she shines in a personal, essayistic film about death, love, language and a dog. Starting out from the terrier Lolabelle, the New York icon makes big cinema with intimate forms of address and weaves together childhood memories, dreams, Buddhist philosophy, Americans surveillance culture, Wittgenstein and Kierkegaard. She draws inspiration from animation, old 8 mm films, collages, newly recorded scenes, personal voice-overs and music.
Laurie Anderson and Heart of Dog won Lina Mangiacapre Award in Venice Film Festival (2016), International Cinephile Society Awards for Best Documentary, Cinema Eye Honors Awards (USA) for Original Music Score and for direction (2016 and Aurora Award in Tromsø International Film Festival (2016).
