Macfarlane, scholar and bard, wrote a spell, an utterance, to invoke each of these words and the elements of the creation each names.

Heart Of A Dog Film By Laurie Anderson, which marks the first feature film in thirty years by multimedia artist Laurie Anderson is must-see movie magic. A cinematic tone poem that flows from a sustained meditation on death and other forms of absence, the film seamlessly weaves together thoughts on Tibetan Buddhism, reincarnation, the modern surveillance state, and the artistic lives of dogs, with an elegy for the filmmaker’s beloved rat terrier, Lolabelle, at its heart. Narrated by Anderson with her characteristic wit, and featuring an original score by the filmmaker, the tender and provocative Heart Of A Dog continues Anderson’s four-and-a-half-decade career of imbuing the everyday with a sense of dreamlike wonder. Film available now on DVD and the film soundtrack available through Nonesuch Records. Poetry In Motion.
