Featured Film:

Laurie Anderson at the Grand Illusion

Extended beyond a two week run that was already an extension of a run late last year at the Northwest Film Forum, Laurie Anderson’s sprawling, funny, devastating essay film Heart of a Dog is back for four more days this week at the Grand Illusion. Ostensibly a film about her beloved dog, Anderson muses on everything from 9/11 to her own childhood memories, processing tragedy and celebrating life. Over it all, but unnamed hangs the death of her husband, Lou Reed. In conjunction, for one night only, the Grand Illusion is also playing a 35mm print of Anderson’s 1986 concert film Home of the Brave, which features William S. Burroughs.
