Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda
One of the most important artistic minds of our era, Ryuichi Sakamoto has had a prolific career spanning over four decades, from techno-pop star, to actor, to Oscar-winning film composer. Returning to music after a battle with cancer, Sakamoto threw himself headlong into the creation of two new masterworks — his critically acclaimed album async and the breathtaking score for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant. From his brilliant career rebirth to his anti-nuclear campaigning, Coda provides a rare window into the mind of a tireless creative powerhouse.
Why You Should See This Film
