Loretta Fahrenholz and Hans-Christian Lotz bring to life the discrepancy between the claim of artistic work’s social relevancy and its actual potential effectiveness as a somnambulistic-pubescent state in which the protagonists are increasingly thrown back upon themselves. The integration of various types of images, film genres, narrative forms and manners of staging into a loose narrative framework turns How to calm down into a kaleidoscopically reflexive film. An equally diversified and aesthetic portrait of a generation of young artists is created, their political and social interest is canceled out by constant self-reflection within the context of art…

“A” is sitting at a spick shiny table with a light blue monochrome screen behind him. He is wearing a jacket and a tie. In front of him on the table are a paper bag and a bottle of ketchup.
He reaches into the bag (loudly rustling). “A” looks into the bag and he pulls out some paper tissues. He extracts a paper box from the bag, puts it in front of him on the table and puts the paper bag aside.
City noises from the invisible outdoor are noticeable. “A” moves casually, not taking any notice of the camera. “A” takes a burger out of the box; the burger is wrapped into paper. He puts it on the table and unwraps it. “A” removes the upper half of the burger, at the same time he is reaching for the ketchup bottle. He shakes the bottle rhythmically a few times until ketchup comes out of the bottle. “A” smiles.
