Toronto-born electronic musician Peaches brings her 'anti-jukebox musical' based around her four albums Teaches of Peaches, Fatherfucker, Impeach My Bush and I Feel Cream to the big screen in her first feature film Peaches Does Herself. Originally performed at the Hebbel-Theater in Berlin, Germany in October 2010, this short behind the scenes clip highlights the lead-up to the opening night performance of Peaches' transsexual rock opera. According to Peaches herself, the opera "tells the story of a young woman who, inspired by a 65-year-old stripper, begins to make sexually forthright music."
Further information about Peaches' Peaches Does Herself can be found on the Festival website, and Peaches can be found on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and her official website.
