Art is long, life is short.

Details About the Film

After receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis, in late 2022 world-renowned composer and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto spent a week filming his final artistic work: a concert film featuring just him and his piano. This performance features twenty pieces carefully curated and sequenced by Sakamoto himself that span his diverse oeuvre, from his pop-star days with the Yellow Magic Orchestra and his film compositions to his final album, 12. Intimately filmed in black-and-white and directed by his son Neo Sora, Ryuichi Sakamoto | Opus lets one of our greatest artists say goodbye to his audience and his artistry on his own terms.
