Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is arguably the most influential force in Jamaican music. He was the producer that took Bob Marley and the Wailers from a local Rocksteady band to international reggae superstars. He has worked for and with the entirety of reggae’s heavyweight community as well as many interational musicians.

Universally acclaimed, People Funny Boy delves behind the myth of Perry to give a fuller examination of his life and work. It centres on extensive interviews with family members, fellow artists, friends, former lovers, enemies and proclamations from the man himself to present a complex portrait of a soul who has been driven by unseen spiritual forces.
