Picturehouse Central is hosting a special screening of Heart of a Dog for Dogs and owners! The screening will also be followed by a Q&A with director Laurie Anderson herself. It's sure to be an extra special event, you can book tickets on the Picturehouses website.
HEART OF A DOG is a personal essay that weaves together childhood memories, video diaries, philosophical musings on data collection, surveillance culture and the Buddhist conception of the afterlife, and heartfelt tributes to the artists, writers, musicians and thinkers who inspire her.Fusing her own witty, inquisitive narration with original violin compositions, hand-drawn animation, 8mm home movies and artwork culled from exhibitions past and present, Anderson creates a hypnotic, collage-like visual language out of the raw materials of her life and art, examining how stories are constructed and told — and how we use them to make sense of our lives.
To celebrate the release, Picturehouse Central will also host Dog Gone Crazy! - a whole season of iconic films that focus on man's best friend. The season will include films like Best in Show, My Dog Tulip and White God for the dog lovers out there.
