Russian mother and son narrate this innovative 360 documentary which traces their nightmarish past in the USSR. Told through striking reenactment tableaus, the surreal 360 experience follows young Elena as she becomes a mail-order-bride to ensure that her gay son, Potato, has a brighter future in the US. "Potato Dreams" could be watched on its own or as a companion piece to SXSW Jury Prize winner "Little Potato" or the narrative feature "Potato Dreams of America".
