For the past 15 years director Volker Schaner has followed Lee Scratch Perry on a spiritual and geographical journey taking in Jamaica, Ethiopia, Switzerland and London. Over this period Volker has earned Perry's trust, resulting in a never-before-granted level of access and 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 and art piece for itself, which is in turns funny, poetic and frequently mind blowing.
In addition to the filmed footage of the man himself, plus an all-star cast of dub and reggae-related musicians, 'Lee Scratch Perry's Vision of Paradise' is illustrated by unique animated scenes. Using traditional painting techniques, the artist Maria Sargarodschi created imaginary characters of surprising contemporary style influenced by Ethiopian Christian Orthodox Church Art, Lee Perry's imaginary cosmos and the Beatles Yellow Submarine. The movie also serves as a unique documentation of Lee's now infamous and already legendary 'secret laboratory' in Switzerland, which despite it's recent destruction by fire, is immortalised in celluloid.
