Who is Arthu Chu? Kickstarter

Received this in the inbox from the filmmakers, Yu Gu and Scott Drucker, who are working on the documentary Who is Arthu Chu?. They’re asking for funding in order to further cover the Jeopardy! exploits of Arthur Chu.

“We are the creative team behind the Arthur Chu documentary. Through Arthur, we 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. “
