Lee 'Scratch' Perry
Lee Scratch Perry's Vision Of Paradise
the cadiz recording co
For the past 15 years director Volker Schaner has followed Perry on a spiritual & geographical journey taking in Jamaica, Ethiopia, Switzerland & London, resulting in a never-before-granted level of access & insight into Perry's fantastical, spiritual world.
This classic-in-the-making tells a story of epic, magical proportions that’s not a biography, more fairytale documentary & art piece for itself, which is in turns funny, poetic & frequently mind blowing. In addition to the filmed footage of the man himself, plus an all-star cast of dub & reggae-related musicians, Lee Scratch Perry’s 'Vision Of Paradise' is illustrated by unique animated scenes. The DVD extras also include a photo gallery of Lee’s creative space in all its chaotic & artistic pre-fire glory. Other DVD extras include a a 24 page book, a 30 minute ‘making of’ documentary, director's comments & over 2 hours of additional unseen scenes.
