Ryuichi Sakamoto has had a prolific career spanning over four decades, from techno-pop stardom with Yellow Magic Orchestra to Oscar-winning film composer with credits including Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence and The Last Emperor. 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, Coda offers an intimate portrait of both the artist and the man.
