"Hello, little bonehead, I'll love you forever," says Laurie Anderson to Lolabelle, her rat terrier.

In HEART OF A DOG, the renowned creative pioneer delivers a lament for her beloved Lolabelle, exploring themes of love, life, death and loss. This impressionist, deeply personal journey through one woman's life, mind and artdebuts MONDAY, APRIL 25 (9:00-10:15 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.

Other HBO playdates: April 28 (4:30 p.m., 12:05 a.m.), and May 3 (9:10 a.m.), 5 (2:30 p.m.), 7 (1:40 p.m.) and 22 (10:30 a.m.)

The documentary will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO and HBO On Demand.

Beginning with an animated dream sequence in which Laurie Anderson imagines giving birth to Lolabelle (who passed away in 2011), this ethereal essay weaves together childhood memories, video footage and musings on a post-9/11 world and the Buddhist conception of the afterlife, as well as heartfelt tributes to artists, writers, musicians and thinkers who inspire her. HEART OF A DOG combines witty, poetic narration with original music compositions, hand-drawn animation, home movies and artwork culled from past and present exhibitions, creating a hypnotic, collage-like visual language out of the raw materials of Anderson's life and art, exploring how stories are constructed and told.

Anderson's philosophical, thought-provoking reflections on her life and the lives of others offer a profound perspective on the struggles everyone faces in understanding death, as well as life's journey.

HEART OF A DOG was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2016 Independent Spirit Awards, and screened at several prestigious film festivals, including Telluride and the Venice, Toronto and New York festivals. Released theatrically in the U.S. last fall to critical acclaim, the film is dedicated to Anderson's husband, Lou Reed, the rock icon who died in 2013. His song "Turning Time Around" closes the film.

Laurie Anderson's multi-decade career as a celebrated creative pioneer spans music, theater, visual art, performance art and more. Her visual work has been shown at museums across the globe, including the Guggenheim in New York. Anderson has released seven albums and published six books, and was NASA's first artist in residence. HEART OF A DOG marks her first feature-length film since 1986's "Home of the Brave."

HEART OF A DOG was written and directed by Laurie Anderson; producers, Dan Janvey and Laurie Anderson; editors, Melody London and Katherine Nolfi; cinematographers, Laurie Anderson, Toshiaki Ozawa and Joshua Zuker-Pluda.
