Stacey Hayashi's "Go For Broke: an Origins Story" Film - A Maui Premier
Stacey Hayashi’s “Go for Broke: an Origins Story” features a star-studded, all-Japanese American cast mostly from Hawaii, and a local crew telling the tale of the start of the famed 442nd Infantry Regiment Combat Team of World War II--the most decorated unit in the history of the United States military for its size and time in combat.
The 442nd was made up of more than 14,000 Japanese American men who served with valor in the European theater and received 21 Congressional Medals of Honor, 8 Presidential Unit Citations, 9,500 Purple Hearts and 5,200 Bronze Star Medals. The motto of the battalion was “Go for Broke.”
The Maui premier is sponsored in part by Maui's Sons and Daughters of the Nisei Veterans, Arisumi Brothers, Inc. and Da Kitchen. Special thanks to the Japanese Cultural Society of Maui and Maui Matsuri.
