The Advocate has obtained an exclusive clip from My Prairie Home, a musical documentary of transgender singer Rae Spoon that is currently screening at the Sundance Film Festival. In this scene, Spoon gazes at the Canadian prairie from a Greyhound bus window while reflecting on social ostracization and Brandon Teena, a murdered trans man whose life and death was depicted in Boys Don't Cry. Throughout the movie, striking landscapes and Spoons’s own songs help illustrate the artist’s journey of self discovery, which is rooted in memories of a troubled past and a conservative religious upbringing.
Directed by Chelsea McMullan (Mise en Scene, The Way Must Be Tried), My Prairie Home will screen Wednesday at 3 p.m. at the Temple Theatre; Friday at 8:30 a.m. at the Library Center Theatre; and Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Holiday Village Cinema 2 in Park City, Utah.
