Lee Scratch Perry’s Vision of Paradise

Buy Tickets Watch Trailer

A fairytale documentary about the legendary music producer Lee Scratch Perry. The director followed 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 Prophet” of the international Rastafari movement, one of the icons of the Black Power movement and “the” inventor of reggae and dub. It is also a humorous adventure with epic dimensions. The movie 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”.

The movie will always be the most intimate, extensive and fascinating adventure you can possibly have with Lee Perry, one of the most special and influential artists of all times. This project is unrepeatable. Prepare yourself for this unique experience: a Vision of Paradise!

This screening is preceded by a live performance from THE Dubber, a self- taught singer/songwriter who plays the blues, infused with American rock, jazz, and folk, and flavored by the international sounds of reggae, Armenian music, and Afrobeat. 

2015. Germany. 100 minutes. Not Rated.
