Eccentric, funny, quirky, incredibly creative and, above all, Rastafarian. Such is the legend of reggae and dub music Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and so his life is presented in the documentary “Lee Scratch Perrys Vision of Paradise”, projection that manages to fill the last available space of the Reggae University on Friday 21st, before his concert that day at the Rototom Sunsplash.
The documentary, as well as showing the funnier and most conscious side of the Jamaican, presents a perfect and historic caricature of the figure of Lee Perry through himself and other professionals from the world of music. Testimonies, anecdotes, images of his various steps in reggae, a trip to London or himself becoming the cameraman of his own story. From the beginning, when he used to meet with Bob Marley and all those musicians who managed to take the first steps to make reggae music and Jamaican culture give the world jump. The reggae revolution, as defined by Lee Perry. A Lee Perry who has Rastafarian blood, defends funny music and has a smile and creativity that make him unique. The vision of that paradise that always shines in the figure of Lee Perry.
