PEACHES DOES HERSELF
With a cast and crew of over 40 people and 20 plus songs from her back catalogue Peaches wrote, directed and starred in this fantastical narrative built 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 fibers 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: omni sexual in body and spirit. She falls in love with a beautiful sexual goddess, but gets her heart broken and then ventures on a path of self-discovery."
With all the live show material from the PDH stage show so well documented and extra footage shot to create an on screen intimacy, Peaches set out to direct Peaches Does Herself, the Film . A brilliant ending change, over 1,500 edits plus careful attention to color gave way to movie magic and Peaches Does Herself, the Movie was unleashed. It’s World Premiere was presented at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September 2012. It toured to over 70’s film festivals world wide in 2013. 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".
