Hashiguchi draws inspiration from his Nisei grandmother and family matriarch Eva Hashiguchi, who <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Resettlement\" title=\"Resettlement\">settled</a> in Cleveland after leaving the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Jerome\" title=\"Jerome\">Jerome</a>, Arkansas, concentration camp during World War II and chose to remain there. In addition to the feature length film, the <i>Good Luck Soup</i> project also includes an interactive website that serves as an \"participatory storytelling\" platform.\n</p><p>Hashiguchi narrates the film in the first person beginning by noting his discomfort with growing up Japanese American in an Irish-Catholic neighborhood in Cleveland and the bigotry he and his family members faced. He introduces and interviews various family members starting with his grandmother, who is shown speaking to a local women's club about her wartime experiences, cooking and gardening, and preparing for her 88th birthday party. As he interviews other family members—his parents and siblings, his cousins and aunts and uncles—he introduces other issues. In addition to the issue of being Japanese American in the black/white universe of the Midwest, there is also the issue of being mixed race, as Hashiguchi and all of his cousins are, since each of Eva's three children married non-Japanese Americans. Additionally, there is the matter of religion, particular in his own immediate family, as his Italian American Catholic mother insisted that he and his siblings be raised Catholic. Hashiguchi also introduces the close knit Japanese American community in Cleveland that serves as a home and refuge for the family. Rejecting his Japanese American heritage as a kid, he comes to embrace it as an adult, inspired by his grandmother's confidence and comfort with who she is. The film ends with her New Year's spread, as various family members come to eat her \"good luck soup\" and with her 88th birthday party. Hashiguchi uses both historical footage and archival images as well as many family photographs and home movies to augment the interviews and first person musings.\n</p><p>Hashiguchi, an assistant professor in multimedia film &amp; production at Georgia Southern University, and made two prior short documentaries, including <i>Lower 9: A Story of Home</i> (2012) on four residents of New Orleans' Lower 9 Ward displaced by Hurricane Katrina and <i>People Aren't All Bad</i> (2013), on a Japanese American incarceree recalling a kindness during his World War II imprisonment. He started the Good Luck Soup project in 2013 and raised initial funding of $15,000 from a Kickstarter campaign in 2014. The interactive website launched on October 6, 2015. The film had its world premiere on March 31, 2016 at the Cleveland International Film Festival. After several other film festival and community screenings, a 56 minute version of <i>Good Luck Soup</i> was shown on PBS in May 2017 as part of the American ReFramed series.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<p>Might also like <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Changing_Season:_On_the_Masumoto_Family_Farm_(film)\" title=\"Changing Season: On the Masumoto Family Farm (film)\">Changing Season: On the Masumoto Family Farm</a></i> (2015); <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Invisible_Citizen_(film)\" title=\"Invisible Citizen (film)\">Invisible Citizen</a></i> (1983); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Relocation,_Arkansas:_Aftermath_of_Incarceration_(film)\" title=\"Relocation, Arkansas: Aftermath of Incarceration (film)\">Relocation, Arkansas: Aftermath of Incarceration</a></i> (2016)\n</p>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Official website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://www.goodlucksoupfilm.com/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.goodlucksoupfilm.com/</a>.\n</p><p><i>Good Luck Soup</i> on worldchannel.org: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://worldchannel.org/programs/episode/arf-s5-505-good-luck-soup/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://worldchannel.org/programs/episode/arf-s5-505-good-luck-soup/</a>.\n</p><p>Kickstarter page: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/matthewhashiguchi/good-luck-soup-interactive-a-transmedia-documentar\" rel=\"nofollow\">https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/matthewhashiguchi/good-luck-soup-interactive-a-transmedia-documentar</a>.\n</p><p>Medlock, Kimiko. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"http://www.discovernikkei.org/en/journal/2015/10/29/ozoni-soup-for-the-ja-soul/\" rel=\"nofollow\">Ozoni Soup for the JA Soul.</a>\" <i>Discover Nikkei</i>, Oct. 29, 2015.\n</p><p>Wu, Priscilla. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"http://hyphenmagazine.com/blog/2017/03/good-luck-soup-review\" rel=\"nofollow\">Good Luck Soup: A Review.</a>\" <i>Hyphen</i>, Mar. 14, 2017.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.120 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.123 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 357/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2587/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 6475/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1357/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 3/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:3855-0!*!0!*!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150625 and revision id 28409\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
