Put Your Hands Together, Please Written & Directed by Jane Sherning Warren When a conflicted young artist offends her pretentious boyfriend after he steals the limelight at their joint exhibition she is chased only to be saved by a protective drag queen with a pool cue. WATCH NOW
Director's Quote

“Nearly everything about Put Your Hands Together, Please is true.

Every statement made by the hipsters in the opening sequences is a genuine quote from a real artist, alive or dead (some of them hugely famous) – a little massaged sometimes to make the whole thing feel like a conversation.

It really is true that people in their early- to mid-twenties think they’re that important, and think they know that much. I really did get chased by a boyfriend and saved by a drag queen with a pool cue. He wasn’t my dad, though.

It’s also true that artists are nothing without an audience... so, thank you, all, from the bottom of our collective hearts. You make what we do worthwhile.”
