Reflecting on ‘A Heart of a Dog’
Taking a walk with performance artist Laurie Anderson and her new dog
By Marshall Heyman
On Thursday evening, the performance artist Laurie Anderson showed her movie, “Heart of a Dog,” to local audiences at a premiere at the New York Film Festival.
But glamorous screenings don’t mean small errands can be ignored, and earlier that morning, Ms. Anderson had to take her dog Will, a border terrier, for a walk.
“Heart of a Dog,” which will open at Film Forum on Oct. 21, was originally commissioned in 2012 by a French German television company that produces films by artists, said Ms. Anderson. (HBO will air the movie in the spring.)
