A feature length documentary about one of the most fascinating and influential artists of our times. The film begins in rural Jamaica, probing into Perry’s mysterious youth as well as the notorious events of his peak production years in Kingston, in which Scratch mentored a young Bob Marley, created the sound of Reggae as we now know it, pioneered a new genre of music he called Dub, invented what was to become the remix and produced international hit songs for artists from Junior Murvin to The Congos to Paul McCartney to The Clash all while working out of the infamous Black Ark Studio, a shack that he built with his hands then later burned to the ground in a fit of drug addled rage.
Equally a documentation of a musical culture and a fascinating character study of genius and madness, The Upsetter is a sight and sound clash of visual and aural styles, utilizing ancient stock footage, photographs, concert video, audio clips, music video clips both old and new, and an exclusive, candid interview with the mastermind himself at his home in Switzerland.
Filmed in Jamaica, London, Switzerland, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Colorado, the Upsetter charts Perry’s influence on all reaches of the globe.
Narrated by Benicio del Toro.
