<p>Anderson was recently commissioned by the European TV network Arte to create a feature film – her first in 30 years.  Her response was a personal essay entitled <em><em>Heart of a Dog</em></em>, a work encompassing joy and heartbreak and remembering and forgetting, at the heart of which is a lament for her late beloved dog Lolabelle.  The Nonesuch album is the full audio recording of the film, including all music and spoken text.<br /><br /><em>Heart of a Dog</em> has been shown at the Telluride, Venice, Toronto, San Sebastian, New York and London Film Festivals to critical praise, with the New York Times calling it a ‘philosophically astute, emotionally charged meditation on death, love, art and dogs,’ and New York magazine saying it is ‘one of the most moving and provocative films you’ll see this year.’  <br /><br />In addition to Anderson’s inimitably thoughtful narration, <em>Heart of a Dog</em> includes musical excerpts from several of her pieces – ‘The Lake’ and ‘Flow’ from Homeland (2010), ‘Beautiful Pea Green Boat’ from Bright Red (1994), ‘Rhumba Club’ from Life on a String (2001), excerpts from Landfall (2011) with Kronos Quartet – as well as the film’s closing song ‘Turning Time Around’, written and performed by Anderson’s late husband, Lou Reed.</p>
