Directed by Naoko Ogigami

2017, (127 minutes) Japanese with English subtitles

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!

Director Naoko Ogigami is one of the next wave of pre-eminent female filmmakers from Japan. Films also directed by her include Megane, Rent-A-Cat, Toilet, Kamome Diner, Go Go Haiku Girl and Yoshino’s Barber.

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
