Heart of a Dog: Talking Film with Tracy Cochran

“A philosophically astute, emotionally charged meditation on death, love, art, and dogs.” (New York Times)

Join us for multimedia artist Laurie Anderson’s 2015 film Heart of a Dog, a wry, deeply touching dream of a movie about her finger-painting, piano-playing terrier, Lolabelle. It is also a meditation about love and loss: of her dog, of a friend, and of her husband, Lou Reed. Anderson’s wonderful storytelling celebrates these brilliantly fleeting lives and life itself, questioning the stories we tell and what slips through the net of our telling.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)
