U.S. Premiere

How Are You is a remarkable documentary about two now famous artists, Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset. The film brings us back to when they fell in love with each other and started working together. The two young rebels force audiences to question the status quo, with irreverence and good humor.

In an astonishing few years, Elmgreen and Dragset have become some of the biggest stars in the international art world. In a sharp, playful and humorous way they pinpoint important themes such as identity, sexuality, welfare and democracy. With simple twists and turns they make us confront ourselves and make us face the conformity and tightness of everyday life and our idiosyncrasies.

The film not only displays a strong selection of their works but also explores the process of making them. It also follows the couple through their career to the grand opening and prize reception in the 2009 edition of the Biennale in Venice.
