Laurie Anderson’s Heart of a Dog Joins the Criterion Collection on March 1st

Heart of a Dog Header

Last October, Laurie Anderson visited the Criterion Collection offices, and spent some time in the fabled closet while promoting her latest film, Heart of a Dog.

Anderson’s latest has been receiving great reviews, with our own Josh Brunsting describing it as:

One of the most emotionally resonant and unshakable films of the year, Laurie Anderson has made a documentary that is both intellectually profound, as well as deeply moving. Unlike anything in theaters this or any year, Heart Of A Dog is one of a kind film from a one of a kind artist. It’s simply a film you can’t afford to miss.

There was some speculation, after Anderson’s visit in the closet, that Criterion would eventually release the film on home video, and indeed it will. On March 1st, the film will be released digitally through the Criterion Collection’s iTunes channel. A physical release has not yet been announced.
