THE FILM  Close-Knit by Naoko Ogigami is a feel-good movie that deals with an unconventional family dynamic consisting of husband, transgender wife and niece, who all happen to live together. One of the first of its kind in Japanese cinema, the film will raise many questions about new families, gender boundaries, cliche identity and new fluid determination. A lively debate with Japanese experts following the screening, will give a deeper understanding of Japanese culture. THE MUSIC Bringing us the sounds of Japan will be Japanese singing ambassador MIOU. Her enthusiasm for music and fashion makes for a beautiful and entertaining performance, having already achieved the award for "Asian Top Fashion Singer " and “Asia Pacific Inspirational Woman”.
