For the past 15 years director Volker Schaner has followed 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 immortalized in celluloid. The DVD extras also include a photo gallery of Lee's creative space in all it's chaotic and artistic pre-fire glory. Other DVD extras include a 24 page book, a 30 minute making of documentary, director's comments and over 2 hours of additional unseen scenes.
