Naoko Ogigami’s feature film tells the story of a young girl finding security in the care of her uncle and his transgender partner after she is neglected by her mother.

The plucky girl finds refuge with her uncle Makio (Kenta Kiritani), a nerdy, good-hearted guy who is her mom’s younger brother. 

After initial doubts, the young girl finds a mother figure in Makio’s transgender partner and the three blossom into a family unit.

Close Knit premiered in the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival’s Panorama section, won the Teddy Special Jury Award and finished second in the voting for the Panorama Audience Award.

Naoko Ogigami is renowned for her exploration of unconventional Japanese women including in movies such as her first big hit Kamome Diner.
