Rae Spoon documentary-musical My Prairie Home to stream online free

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      If you missed Chelsea McMullan's inventive and thoughtful musical-documentary My Prairie Home, about Calgary-born, Montreal-based transgender singer-songwriter Rae Spoon, at last year's Vancouver International Film Festival, Canadian viewers will have a brief chance to watch it online for free.

      On Sunday and Monday (January 26 and 27), the film will be viewable online at the National Film Board of Canada website. After that time, it will be available as video-on-demand or download-to-own from iTunes and the NFB from Tuesday (January 28) onward.

      The film presents Spoon's music (in visually inspired sequences) along with their (Spoon uses the third-person pronoun) life experiences growing up, including their sexuality and gender identity. (Spoon recently performed at the PuSh Performing Arts Festival in Vancouver with Ivan Coyote.)

      The trailer will appear until the film is available online at 12:01 (EST) on January 26.
