Lee Scratch Perry's Visions of Paradise

NTS presents: Lee Scratch Perry's Vision of Paradise

18 Feb 2016

A thrilling, poetic story with the legendary Lee Scratch Perry, this movie is a unique project in many ways: it’s not a biography but rather a fairy tale documentary. The director followed Lee Perry for 15 years and discovered a story that is almost impossible to believe: a revelation, told about and with one of the major protagonists of contemporary music.

It is a mind-blowing encounter with the inventor of reggae and dub, the mentor of Bob Marley and, as such, one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. The movie is a humorous adventure of epic dimensions with amazing animation scenes illustrating Lee Perry’s spiritual world. It can be seen as a guide for how to change the world with music – with a positive attitude, mindset or, as Lee Perry calls it: “vibration”.
