I recently got the opportunity to have a chat with Abe Speigel, who is currently directing The Nujabes Documentary: An Eternal Soul. The documentary chronicles the life of DJ/Producer Seba Jun “Nujabes”. Nujabes was one of the most prolific contributors to the background music and soundtracks of the anime series Samurai Champloo (2004), and created a unique musical style that established him as one of the most original producers within Japan and throughout the world. On February 26, 2010, Nujabes was involved in a traffic accident in which he tragically passed away. This documentary is a tribute to his life and talent within music. You can listen to my interview concerning the project with Mr. Spiegel below.

As an avid viewer of both Japanese animation and cinema for more than a decade now, Miguel is primarily concerned with establishing a critical look into both mediums as legitimate forms of artistic, cultural, and societal understanding. Never one to simply look at a film or series based solely on superficiality, Miguel has dedicated himself towards bringing awareness to Asian entertainment and its various facets.
