A gift to long-time fans, a primer for new ones, a victory lap” – Vulture 

Visionary composer Ryuichi Sakamoto has been awarded multiple Oscar, Grammy, and BAFTA wins, creating some of the most memorable original film scores for directors from Bertolucci and Oshima to Inarritu and Miike. Sakamoto, who first found fame in 1978 with band Yellow Magic Orchestra, is also a synth-pop pioneer, electronic experimenter, actor and performer whose sound has impacted genres from classical, electro and hip-hop. He’s even composed Nokia ringtones. 

Followed here for 5 years by Schible’s patient, curious camera, the film not only explores Sakamoto’s musical voice, but his vocal activism - organising anti-nuclear performances, and his personal life, following a cancer diagnosis in 2014. Whether listening to raindrops in a bowl, recording melting ice in the Arctic, or hunting down a baby grand piano which survived a tsunami, Sakamoto is mesmerising, with a presence that lingers long after the curtain falls.
