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 film 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. 'Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda' is an intimate portrait of both the artist and the man.
Our lockdown festival presents works that are bold and eloquent in a range of subjects. From the Mafia in Palermo to sound clashes in the Congo.
