Arthur, that outspoken Asian-American Jeopardy! champ, now has a feature film being made about him. It’s time for more Asian-American superheroes in the media, and Arthur has ironically become one, even if it was a trivial pursuit (pun intended). Through Arthur, filmmakers Scott Drucker and Yu Gu (a Chinese-Canadian) hope to give viewers a different, more intimate portrayal of the game show. We are exploring such themes as: the nature of viral celebrity in the modern world, ethnicity and new media, and the American Dream. The film also examines the link Arthur has made between his success on Jeopardy! as an outspoken “Asian-American” champion and the immediate backlash he received as a result. But we also have access to film in the Jeopardy! studio and interviews lined up with notable figures such as Ken Jennings and *Alex Trebek. We are a very small team working with this giant in Jeopardy! (don’t forget the exclamation point) and could use all the help we could get to tell our story about the Arthur Chu (also don’t forget the exclamation point). I think a lot of people would love to hear Arthur’s story but we need your help. So support the film at the link below and help us spread the word…with those other links below that.
