Documentary 2023 103 mins

Director: Neo Sora



Directed with intimacy by the musician’s son, who was committed to filming the music in and of itself, we hear and see every moment of Sakamoto as he revisits many of his most distinctive compositions, including a selection of beloved film soundtracks. Shot in immaculate black and white, and within the confines of a sparse recording studio, this film delivers a tangible sense of being present at Sakamoto’s last performance.
