Close-Knit かれが本気で編むときは、

Thursday November 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Directed by Naoko Ogigami

2017, (127 minutes) Japanese with English subtitles

Open to students, faculty, staff & public

As part of International Week 2018 taking place at the University of Western Ontario in LONDON, The Japan Foundation, Toronto is co-presenting this touching film that premiered at the Berlin Film Festival to rave reviews.

After being abandoned by her mother, 11-year-old Tomo is taken in by her uncle Makio and his girlfriend Rinko. Rinko is a transgendered woman with a heart of gold. Close-knit offers a heart-warming reflection on discrimination and ignorance and, more importantly, on the true meaning of family. Plus lots of knitting!

Co-presented by University of Western Ontario, Department of English and Writing Studies, The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and The Japan Foundation, Toronto
