Having captivated the crowds at Sundance, we are delighted to present the European premiere of the wonderfully genre-queer My Prairie Home and welcome back the star of last year’s hot ticket Gender Failure, musician Rae Spoon. Growing up queer and trans in an abusive, evangelical Christian household in Alberta, Canada, gave Spoon a unique perspective on life. Whether singing or in interview they (Spoon uses gender neutral pronouns) have a disarming honesty. My Prairie Home is a meditation on home and belonging made from a fine blend of travelogue, documentary, music video, magical realism and live concert footage, shot against a backdrop of diners, burnt out cars, Greyhound bus stations and giant model dinosaurs. This dreamy, odd, queer film is one for anyone who’s ever felt out of place.

Jason Barker

This screening will be followed by a live performance by Rae Spoon.
