About the project and the company

Potato Dreams of America

Award-winning team

Written & Directed by Wes Hurley

Produced by Mischa Jakupcak, Sarah Crowe & Mel Eslyn

Following the success of his Oscar-qualified award-winning short documentary “Little Potato”, Wes “Potato” Hurley is making his feature autobiography “Potato Dreams of America” – a very timely take on the American Dream from an immigrant’s perspective. The film follows Potato, a young gay boy growing up in the disintegrating USSR, his mail-order-bride mom and their adventurous escape to America. This true story is so full of surprises, it proves that life is often much stranger than fiction.
