Potato Dreams of America is a quirky, dark comedy feature film based on the filmmaker Wes Hurley’s life. This is poignant and timely portrait of a dreamer and his mother-that proves that truth is often stranger than fiction.
Struggling to survive in the USSR during the turbulent years of Perestroika, Elena and her gay son, Potato, escape into the fantasy world of pirated American movies. But soon the movies are not enough and Elena decided to become a mail-order bride and discover America for herself.
Once in the US, Elena and Potato find out that her new American husband is a Christian fundamentalist and a right wing fanatic. The mother and son have to negotiate their new freedoms very carefully or risk losing everything. Saving its most unexpected twist til the end, this is an inspiring and timely story of two immigrants’ version of the American Dream.
Here are the links to the short doc LITTLE POTATO that won at SXSW and our VR companion piece POTATO DREAMS which premiered at AFI (both were recently released on Atlantic and Topic respectively). Each piece tells the condensed version of our story.
