My Prairie Home is a 2013 Canadian documentary film about transgender singer/songwriter Rae Spoon, directed by Chelsea McMullan. It features musical performances and interviews about Spoon’s troubled childhood, raised by Pentecostal parents obsessed with the Rapture and an abusive father, as well as Spoon's past experiences with gender confusion. The film was shot in the Canadian Prairies, including the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller. My Prairie Home was produced by Lea Marin for the National Film Board of Canada.
McMullan has said she first found out about Spoon around 2007, when she was making a western-themed NFB film set in the B.C. Interior. She was searching for "subversive" country-folk soundtrack music when someone suggested Spoon. According to Spoon, the idea for the documentary came out of a discussion with McMullan in 2010 about the musician’s perceived lack of marketability, a criticism Spoon sometimes receives when applying for music video funding.
Spoon has stated that it had initially been difficult for to open up so much about personal details, so McMullan suggested writing it down before they talked.
