How are you (Jannik Splidsboel, DK, 2011)
Bøje Lomholdt

A documentary about the artist duo Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset. The film displays a strong selection of their works and chronicles their career from the beginning, when the pink-knitting clown Dragset helped the wannabe artist Elmgreen to create the very early work Instant Baby, to the grand opening of their two Pavilions at the Venice Biennale 2009. Even though the two young rebels started out shooting salt water into their veins, they ended up meeting the Queen of Norway at the peak of their fame.
