New York Premiere

By turns melancholy, meditative, and playful, this is a road movie, a coming-of-age story, a musical, and a clever subversion of all these genres. My Prairie Home follows transgender singer/songwriter Rae Spoon on a cross-country journey punctuated by Greyhound Bus rides, cheap motels, and the vast open plains and depthless skies of the Canadian western prairies where Spoon grew up and lives. A poetic combination of interviews, performances, and delicately rendered musical sequences create an impressionistic atmosphere where Spoon’s struggles with an evangelical father and evolution as both an artist and a person are revealed in intimate, quirky, and moving detail, with Spoon’s beloved prairie home playing a prominent role in shaping their music and life.
