A thrilling, poetic story with the legendary Jamaican reggae producer Lee Scratch Perry, who produced Bob Markey’s records, worked with Keith Richards, Beastie Boys, and David Lynch.
The director Volker Schaner has been listening to Lee Perry since he was 14, and that music changed his life he says.
So he set out on a journey to follow Lee Perry for 13 years, and discovered a fantastic and humorous story about one of the major protagonists of contemporary music, one of the icons of the Black Power movement, and “the” inventor of reggae and dub.
The “fairytale documentary”, as the director calls it, 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 project was Kickstarter-funded, and received over $22,000 to be completed during the campaign.
