Synopsis
Indie singer/songwriter Rae Spoon takes us on a playful journey across the majestic expanse of the Canadian Prairie, through landscapes both real and emotional. Not a conventional concert film or biography, this documentary-musical occupies a beautiful space in between. Interviews, performances, and poetic visual sequences reveal Spoon’s inspiring process of building a life as a transgender person. As the camera captures Alberta’s haunting landscapes from the windows of a Greyhound bus or through the curtains of a tiny motel room, viewers are immersed in Spoon’s experiences from an upbringing in a deeply religious — and deeply troubled — home to bracingly personal and reflective songs, performed at truck stop diners and wherever else the imagination allows. My Prairie Home is an unforgettable look at a unique Canadian artist.
