Potato Republic (2011)

Original title: Kartuli Wabariik

Documentary Duration 28:52

Potato Republic

Artist and event organizer Tarmo Ladva wants to achieve his goal to establish Potato Republic in Laanemetsa village, Taheva parish that is located in a peripheral region of Estonia. Potato Republic would serve as a museum to introduce potato as the symbol of Estonian food and to remember history. His high-flown ideas about creating a bath cinema and heritage theatre, however, get stuck due to financial difficulties and general scepticism. The man full of enthusiasm won't give up and gives it another try.
