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 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 cancer, his haunting awareness of life crisis leads to a resounding new masterpiece. In Japanese. “One of the greatest documentaries about the creative process.” –The Telegraph. “A portrait of an artist that is nearly as powerful and necessary as the artist himself.” -IndieWire
