South Social Film Festival is London’s home for international independent films. This April it is celebrating Japan with a special event at the Moving Pictures Cinema, located within Mercato Metropolitano, in Elephant and Castle.

Close-Knit, by Naoko Ogigami is a feel-good movie that deals with an unconventional family dynamic consisting husband, transgender wife and niece, all of whom 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, cliché identity and new fluid determination.

A debate with Japanese experts follows the screening, and will give audiences a deeper understanding of Japan – a country renowned for its historical and extensive cinema, influential music industry, anime, video gaming and rich cuisine – and its culture.

Japanese singer and songwriter MIOU will also be part of the festival, and will bring her enthusiasm for music and fashion to the event. Japanese food specialist Katsuma will be serving up a mix of sushi and sashimi for guests and a ‘bento box’ during the film.
