    Laurie Anderson spoke with fellow filmmaker Darren Aronofsky following a screening of her new film, Heart of a Dog, at the Rubin Museum of Art in NYC last month. Their conversation is now featured on The Talkhouse Film Podcast, which you can hear here. "Thoughtful, witty, and warm, [Heart of a Dog] ponders profound questions about love, death, and language," says Talkhouse's Nick Dawson. "It's an essay film, sure, but heartfelt and intimate rather than heady and intellectual." Anderson previously spoke with tUnE-yArDs' Merrill Garbus for The Talkhouse Music Podcast.
