442 Origins will tell the story of the 100th / 442nd Regimental Combat Team and Military Intelligence Service.
The 442 Origins series is a Hawaii-based, non-commercial education film project that will tell the complete story of the 100th/442nd Regimental Combat Team and Military Intelligence Service. The first film in the series, Go For Broke, is currently in production in Hawaii, and they are in need of Asian men to be extras in the film.
Go For Broke follows a group of University of Hawaii ROTC students during the tumultuous year after the attack on Pearl Harbor as they navigate wartime Hawaii and fight discrimination by forming the Varsity Victory Volunteers (VVV). The brave actions of these young Japanese Americans, along with the perseverance of the original 100th Infantry Battalion draftees from Hawaii, directly led to the formation of the all-Japanese American fighting unit — the 442nd — the most decorated combat unit in American military history.
If you're in Hawaii, they're looking for Asian men, ages 16-30, this Saturday, January 7 at UH Manoa to help create iconic moments from the formation of the 442nd Regimental Combat team. Here's some more info:
