My Prairie HomeCanada, 2013 : Alberta Premiere
In Chelsea McMullan’s documentary-musical, MY PRAIRIE HOME, 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, Spoon sweetly croons us through their queer and musical coming of age. Audiences are offered a glimpse into Spoon’s life and artistic process, as they return to the places where many of the film’s songs were written and composed. McMullan’s genre-defying blend of documentary, musical and a road movie wonderfully captures the various facets of the Spoon’s life. Combining interviews, performances and music sequences, MY PRAIRIE HOME reveals Spoon’s inspiring process of building a life of their own, as a trans person and as a musician. As Spoon says, gazing out a Greyhound window, “You can’t be where you’re going yet, and you can’t be where you left. You’re in this in-between space.”
