On this episode Dawn connects with filmmaker Wes Hurley for his autobiographical narrative POTATO DREAMS OF AMERICA. Hurley is a Seattle-based, Soviet Union-born LGBTQ filmmaker. POTATO is based on his upbringing in the Soviet Union watching pirated American films on a secret tv channel, and then moving to America seeking a better life after his Mom became a mail-order-bride. Dawn and Wes talk about what films he's seen 1000 times on bad VHS tapes, craving bland Russian food, and being drawn to experimental art and filmmaking.
