Movie Info

With a cast and crew of over 40 people and 20 plus songs from her back catalogue (The Teaches of Peaches, Fatherfucker, Impeach my Bush, I Feel Cream) Peaches wrote, directed and starred in this fantastical narrative build obscurely around her development as an artist and performer from "bedroom wannabe to fully fledged rock-stardom and beyond!". The result is a retrospective 'anti-jukebox' musical; a wild and wonderful trip through landmark moments in her career and albums, channeled through the eccentric and sexually skewed fibres of Peaches' imagination: "Peaches Does Herself tells the story of a young woman who, inspired by a 65-year-old stripper, begins to make sexually forthright music. Her popularity grows and she becomes what her fans expect her to be: transsexual. She falls in love with a beautiful she-male, but gets her heart broken and then ventures on a path of self-discovery." And just over a year later, Peaches' sensational electro-rock opera exploded onto the silver screen! After ten live performances, over 1,500 cuts, a movie was pulled together in a labour of love and polished up over the period of a year and lucky audiences in Toronto were the first to see the film when it had its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2012. Critics have described the movie as "a 'Pina' for the queer and sexually liberated crowd" and others "a great introduction to the wild, pumping, sexual world of Peaches". Peaches herself likes to describe it as "The Jukebox Musical that got a Sex Change"! (C) Official Site

It's a mix of brash celebration and sexual-wilderness heartbreak.

While it helps to already be a fan, it's imaginative and energetic enough to be entertaining for the uninitiated.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Mixing humour and pro-sex didacticism in a way that's more like performance art than pop product, Peaches Does Herself is constantly inventive.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

The simplicity with which Peaches Does Herself presents the still rather fraught categories of sexual and gender identity, and the pleasure with which she casts them to the wind, could be of real help to young people who struggle with these things daily.

Film School Rejects

The quasi-concert film Peaches Does Herself is exactly what gender-bending electro-pop singer Peaches means it to be, for better or worse.
