Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda
Directed by Stephen Nomura Schible
TIFF / Various screenings
International

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 a cancer diagnosis, his haunting awareness of life crisis leads to a resounding new masterpiece. Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda is an intimate portrait of both the artist and the man. Director Stephen Nomura Schible maps the evolution of Sakamoto’s music in the wake of political and personal turmoil.

“The way Tarkovsky used the sound of water, not just water but also wind or footsteps, added rich auditory texture. He had a profound love and reverence for the sound of things.” –Ryuichi Sakamoto

Various screenings in 2018, including at Film Society of Lincoln Center , TIFF, and available on MUBI.
