My Prairie Home doc to stream online for two days

The National Film Board of Canada will stream Chelsea McMullan’s documentary-musical about trans-gendered singer/songwriter Rae Spoon, My Prairie Home this weekend.

In anticipation of the film’s home consumer release on Tuesday, the National Film Board will stream the film online on for two days.  You can begin watching the film right here (below) beginning at 12:01am on Sunday, January 26, 2014.

McMullan’s documentary takes a candid look at Spoon’s embattled Pentecostal childhood and their early struggles with gender identity.  Told using much of their own music, the film is a queer and musical coming of age with interviews, performances and music sequences that are intended to reveal Spoon’s process of building a life of their own, as a trans person and as a musician.

Please note that the film trailer will be shown below until the film begins streaming at 12:01am on Sunday, January 26, 2014.
