This March, Vibraphonic music festival returns to Exeter, celebrating diversity, from reggae and world music through to blues and soul. Alongside a host of music events, Studio 74 will be screening two newly released films about music.
Lee Scratch Perry’s Vision Of Paradise follows the inventor of reggae and dub on a journey that is almost impossible to believe, whilst Janis: Little Girl Blue is part of our Women On Film series, examining Janis Joplin’s story in depth for the first time on film.

Lee Scratch Perry’s Vision Of Paradise
Fri 4 Mar | 7.30pm | £6
A thrilling, poetic narration with the legendary Lee Scratch Perry, this movie is a unique project in many ways: it’s not a biography but rather a fairytale documentary.
It is a mind-blowing encounter with “The Prophet” of the international Rastafari movement, one of the icons of the Black Power movement and “the” inventor of reggae and dub and it is also a humorous adventure of epic dimensions.
Janis: Little Girl Blue
Sat 12 Mar | 7.30pm | £6
Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic rock & roll singers of all time, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1971 at age 27.
With Janis: Little Girl Blue, Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil, West of Memphis) examines Joplin’s story in depth for the first time on film, presenting an intimate and insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, often beleaguered artist.
