Lee Scratch Perry's Vision Of Paradise says
Dub Champions Festival founder Emch of Subatomic Sound System joins us in person to present this unique "fairytale documentary" about the world of musician Lee Scratch Perry - a prophet of the international Rastafari movement and founder of reggae and dub.

Far from being a standard biopic, Vision Of Paradise is the culmination of German filmmaker Volker Schaner’s 15-year journey to the heart of Lee Scratch Perry’s universe: following him on travels to Jamaica, Ethiopia, Germany, Switzerland and London, and using mind-boggling Yellow Submarine-meets-Ethiopian Orthodox style animation to trace Perry’s life and legacy–from working under Coxsone Dodd in 1950s Jamaica to the founding of The Upsetters and the Black Ark recording studio, where he worked with Bob Marley, Junior Murvin, The Congos and countless others.

Perry will be performing live with Subatomic Sound System in Seattle 9/17 at Nectar on his 80th birthday tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of his Super Ape album for the 6th annual Dub Champions Festival USA.
