Documentary Ryuichi Sakamoto: CODA depicts the major happenings of Ryuichi Sakamoto, renowned Japanese musician and artist, in recent years – the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster triggered by the 3.11 Tōhoku Earthquake, suffering from cancer, release of new album, etc. Such events not only render the way how Sakamoto correlates life with art, but also the embodying of humanism.
Referring to the musical term of movement to the end, “CODA” could be brought to understand “life” and “era”. In what ways do the Japanese confront to various kinds of disasters?
