Abstract:

Award-winning filmmaker Chelsea McMullan takes audiences on a poetic journey through landscapes both real and emotional in My Prairie Home, an intimate portrait of transgender singer Rae Spoon. Neither a concert film nor a conventional biographical doc, this documentary-musical occupies a beautiful space in between. My Prairie Home is as bracingly personal and reflective as the songs of this acclaimed musician, who was born in Alberta and raised in a troubled and deeply religious home. McMullan tells Spoon's story through interviews, spoken performance and music, set to a backdrop of stunning images of the Canadian Prairies. As the camera captures Alberta's haunting landscapes from the windows of Greyhound buses and through the curtains of tiny motel rooms, McMullan immerses viewers in the indie musician's experiences and struggles, while Spoon's songs are brought to life via shows at truck-stop diners and imaginative staged visual interpretations. My Prairie Home is an unforgettable look at a unique Canadian artist.
