The documentary short “A Friendship in Tow/Toe” (“Até a pró/cima!”) directed by Atsushi Kuwayama, a DocNomads student from Japan, will have its World Premiere in the 25th HotDocs – Canadian International Documentary Festival held in Toronto from 27th April to 7th May 2017.

A Friendship in Tow/Toe (Até a pró/cima) • 10' • 2016 • o.v Portuguese

Synopsis: One night in Lisbon, a Japanese man helps an elderly Portuguese woman on crutches ascend a massive set of stairs. Their amusing encounter and surprising connection, despite major language barriers, rivals any Richard Linklater romance or Aaron Sorkin walk-and-talk for humour and admission. Without fully understanding each other, they share stories and sarcasm that reveal their personalities and vulnerabilities in the span of just five flights.
