CLOSE-KNIT BY NAOKO OGIGAMI

SOUTH SOCIAL CELEBRATES JAPAN

6 April 6pm
Moving Pictures Cinema @ Mercato Metropolitano
Elephant & Castle
Join us on 6 April to celebrate JAPAN with a screening of Naoko Ogigami’s ’Close-Knit’.

 

Close-Knit is a heartwarming film following the unlikely family dynamic of a young girl, her uncle and his transgender wife who all end up living together. The first of its kind in Japan, the film challenges hetronormative views on families with the introduction of a transgender character, representing what Ogigami came to realise was an under represented part of Japanese society. A lively debate with Japanese experts following the screening, will give a deeper understanding of Japanese culture.
