| 1 h 16 min

In this feature documentary-musical by Chelsea McMullan, indie singer Rae Spoon takes us on a playful, meditative and at times melancholic journey. Set against majestic images of the infinite expanses of the Canadian Prairies, the film features Spoon crooning about their queer and musical coming of age. Interviews, performances and music sequences reveal Spoon’s inspiring process of building a life of their own, as a trans person and as a musician.

Official selection at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

    My Prairie Home is a beautiful sensitive film that complicates gender through a combination of Spoon's autobiographical storytelling, her evocative contemplative music, and the alienating lonely Prairie landscape. A fine example of using a local individual story to examine larger issues of gender discrimination, religious baggage, and the difficulties of coming home. As well, the film possesses a quintessential NFB aesthetic that evokes how landscape shapes our identity as Canadians.
