Close - Knit かれが本気で編むときは、

University Community Centre (UCC)
Room: 56

As part of International Week 2018, the Department of English and Writing Studies and the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures are delighted to present the 2017 Japanese film Close-Knit. The Japan Foundation, Toronto is sponsoring 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!

Directed by Naoko Ogigami
