Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda

As he returns to music following a cancer diagnosis, the prolific musician’s haunting awareness of life crises inspires a resounding new masterpiece.

Ryuichi Sakamoto has had a prolific musical career over four decades, from techno-pop stardom to Oscar-winning film composer, and his music’s evolution has coincided with his life journeys.

An avid environmentalist, Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan’s social movement against nuclear power following Fukushima.

This film documents his return to music following a cancer diagnosis and the creation of a resounding new masterpiece.
