A thrilling, poetic story with the legendary Lee Scratch Perry, this movie is a unique project in many ways: it’s not a biography but rather a fairy tale documentary! The director followed Lee Perry for 15 years and discovered a story that is almost impossible to believe: a revelation, told about and with one of the major protagonists of contemporary music. It is a mind-blowing encounter with “the” inventor of reggae and dub, the mentor of Bob Marley and as such one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. The movie is a humorous adventure of epic dimensions with amazing animation scenes illustrating Lee Perry’s spiritual world. It can be seen as a guide for how to change the world with music – with a positive attitude, mind set or, as Lee Perry calls it: “vibration”.

“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 protaginists of contemporary music”.
