As Resident Advisor follows Motor City Drum Ensemble over a few days, we witness an introspective and personal view of his time on the road.
Once one of the busiest DJ, Danilo Plessow then suddenly vanished from the circuit. In this short documentary of his slow comeback as a travelling DJ, he explains why he had to take some time away from the stage. The intimate portrait paints the picture of a calm man, who struggled with the pressure and anxiety of the highs and lows of life on tour.
From the applause of the crowds to the loneliness of hotel rooms, this is a reminder — as well as a cautionary tale — that no one is safe from burnouts… or mental illness.
