One of the most important artistic minds of our era, Ryuichi Sakamoto has enjoyed a prolific career spanning four decades, from techno-pop star, to actor, to Oscar-winning film composer.
Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Ryuichi Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan’s social movement against nuclear power and an unofficial spokesperson for the fear, anger and anxiety of the Japanese people. As Sakamoto returns to music following his battle with throat cancer, his haunting awareness of his own life crisis, as well as that of his country, leads to a creation of a resounding new masterpiece.
Stephen Nomura Schible's sensitive and illuminating film stands not only as a portrait of an extraordinary career, but as one of the most intimate examinations of the creative process ever committed to film.
Join us for this special advance screening to celebrate Ryuichi Sakamoto's visit to Australia. Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda will screen exclusively at ACMI in December and January.
