Knitflix Presents ‘Close-Knit’ CANCELLED
UNFORTUNATELY THIS SCREENING IS CANCELLED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES
VENUE CAPACITY: 100
Woolly Mondays, the Ivy House’s very own knitting (and crochet) group presents Close-Knit.
Knitting is catharsis for Rinko, a transwoman whose maternal feelings are stirred by the arrival of her boyfriend’s 11-year-old niece, Tomo. Abandoned by her mum, resilient Tomo is used to fending for herself and now Rinko must gain the trust of the insecure little girl. Those seeking Western gender politics or a sassy trans heroine are in for something different here. Although Rinko’s knitting patterns do have a subversive streak, her feminine values are more aligned with genteel passivity and familial subservience.
