Description

Meet Rae Spoon: your typical transgender folk singer.

Using Greyhound buses and motels, Rae Spoon, a transgender singer-songwriter, takes a musical and personal journey across the Canadian prairies. Spoon’s inspiring and empowering road to a musical and gender identity discovery is a tale of integrity and fortitude. Performing in bars, museums, music halls, and any place that people will listen, Spoon reveals to be a talented performer whose songs are haunting and lyrical, with pathos and humor. Director Chelsea McMullan intersperses interviews and live performances with playful and comical musical sequences and evocatively uses the lonely and beautiful Prairie landscape. We not only receive an intimate understanding of a unique individual but also of a world which few of us see or truly understand. A documentary-musical, My Prairie Home promises to hit a high note!
