Dog days

Pasatiempo - - PASATIEMPO -

Lau­rie An­der­son’s mov­ing new doc­u­men­tary fea­ture, Heart of a Dog, short­listed for an Acad­emy Award, is a ten­der and haunt­ing med­i­ta­tion on her late dog Lo­la­belle — and so much more. An­der­son, a per­for­mance artist and mu­si­cian, re­flects on the na­ture of sto­ry­telling and its re­la­tion­ship to lan­guage and mem­ory, wind­ing her way through sev­eral nar­ra­tives that con­nect in sur­pris­ing ways. An­der­son par­tic­i­pates in Q & A ses­sions at screen­ings of the movie at the Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts on Fri­day, Dec. 11, and Satur­day, Dec. 12. On the cover is a por­trait of An­der­son and Lo­la­belle.
