We are pleased to announce that Matthew Hashiguchi’s documentary GOOD LUCK SOUP will have its national broadcast premiere on America ReFramed Tuesday, May 9 at 8pm ET on PBS’s WORLD Channel. Check your local listings!
In GOOD LUCK SOUP, Matthew explores his Japanese American identity through conversations with members of his multi-ethnic family, the star of which is his spunky Japanese grandmother, Eva, who was interned in a prison camp during WWII.
To celebrate the premiere, we asked Matthew to share one of his favorite family recipes with us–one we could make to snack on while watching GOOD LUCK SOUP. We can’t wait to try out the Hashiguchi teriyaki recipe! Matthew says: “It’s pretty much good on anything. We use it on chicken mostly: chicken wings, tenders and in stir fry. It’s good on corn and grilled items too. Any veggies. You can put some honey in it, too!”
Let us know if you’re snacking on the Hashiguchi family teriyaki sauce, or one of your own family recipes, during the premiere using #goodlucksoupdoc! We’re on Twitter and Instagram as: @docued, and Matthew is on Twitter as: @MatthewHash and Instagram as: @MatthewHashiguchi.
Matthew is a member of DER’s Filmmaker Services Program, and we are glad to be able to support his work. Stay tuned for information on the film’s distribution!
