Trailer for the documentary Driving Me Crazy. Filmmaker Nick Broomfield is hired to direct a film accompanying the 1988 German stage production of Body and Soul, a massive revival of African American music from the thirties and forties.

Broomfield trains his lens on the messy arguments and chaotic interplay, shifting the subject from the production of the play to the production of the increasingly complicated film. Promises are broken, fuses blown, and cameras pushed out of the way, but Broomfield remains unwavering until the curtains finally close.
