23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Ryuichi Sakamoto: CODA
A portrait of a composer who is considered the founder of modern pop music in Japan, and who is also a legend of international film music (The Last Emperor, Little Buddha, The Revenant). We are reminded of the fragility of the world by Sakamoto’s cancer and by the destruction in the wake of the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The film is both highly personal and very social.
Japanese director and producer Stephen Nomura Schilbe (1970) was a co-producer of the film Lost in Translation (2003). He also filmed a performance of Sakamoto’s Async concert program in New York.
