The team behind Lee Scratch Perry's Visions Of Paradise need to raise $20,000 to finish a unique movie which promises to become a classic and tells a story of epic, magical proportions.
For the past 14 years film-maker Volker Schaner has followed Perry on a spiritual and geographical journey taking in Jamacia, Ethopia, Germany, Switzerland and London. Over this period Volker has earned Perry's trust, resulting in a never-before-granted level of access and insight into Perrys' fantastical, spiritual world.
With a thrilling, poetic narration from the legendary Lee Scratch Perry, this is not a biography, more a fairytale documentary. Volker has charted a story that is almost impossible to believe: a revelation, told in the own words of one of the world's major protagonists of contemporary music.
We're extremely confident that upon completion Lee Scratch Perry's Vision Of Paradise will rival or even eclipse the likes of The Devil and Daniel Johnston, Dig, Oil City Confidential, The Filth And The Fury, Marley, Maestro, High Tech Soul or Paris Is Burning.
