Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda

Dir: Stephen Nomura Schible (2017)

One of the most important artists of our era, Ryuichi Sakamoto has had a prolific career spanning over four decades, from techno-pop stardom to Oscar-winning film composer. The evolution of his music has coincided with his life journeys.

Following Fukushima, Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan’s social movement against nuclear power. As Sakamoto returns to music following cancer, his haunting awareness of life crisis leads to a resounding new masterpiece.

Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda is a gentle and reflective portrait of both the artist and the man.

Granted unprecedented access to Sakamoto's life and work, Stephen Nomura Schible's sensitive and illuminating film stands not only as a portrait of an extraordinary career, but surely one of the most intimate examinations of the creative process ever committed to film.
