To celebrate the release of Laurie Anderson’s, Heart of a Dog, Dogwoof are pleased to offer the chance to win one of two copies of the DVD.
“Hello, little bonehead. I’ll love you forever.” So begins Heart of a Dog, a personal, touching and unforgettable film by Laurie Anderson (Home of the Brave), the internationally renowned musician, artist and filmmaker.
Cantering on Anderson’s beloved rat terrier, Lolabelle, who died in 2011, Heart of a Dog is the filmmaker’s cinematic journey through love, death and language. The film weaves together a plethora of artistic influence, including 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 have inspired 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.
Heart of a Dog is released on DVD 13 June. Order your copy from dogwoof.com/heartofadog.
We have 2 copies of the DVD to give away!
