Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see the world through the eyes of Lee “Scratch” Perry? Fifteen years in the making, German director Volker Schaner’s documentary Vision of Paradise, currently screening at theaters in the U.K., offers this possibility, however briefly. In this preview of the film viaย Nowness, the mischievous reggae and dub visionary takes the camera himself, sharing his vision of the world through stills and videos at his home in Switzerland, and outside Buckingham Palace. Of course, it is a sight to behold. Watch below, and check out screening dates here.
