11th September, the memory of a loved one, a dog called Lolabelle... What are the stories? How are they told to us? Heart of a Dog is a film about forgetting and remembering, about language and images, and finally about the way we tell others and ourselves stories. A line, an imaginary one of course, could easily link Heart of a Dog to Chris Marker and to the latest Godard. Laurie Anderson, renowned musician and multidisciplinary artist, takes us on an enchanting, lyrical and fun jour- ney, spinning her weave of images and sounds with a bright poetic intelligence. The introspection becomes political, the family films in 8 mm become cartoons... And an entire imagination reveals itself, borne along by her voice and her music, inviting the audience’s eyes to cross the flowing, unpredictable and constant transformations of the images.
