Is shaking hands an act of friendship and greeting? Or, a way to show who’s boss? Follow these simple rules and you can learn to use your handshake to take control of any situation. ‘Shake Like A Man’ parodies the language of business etiquette guides and online self-help videos in order to dissent from their message. Whether in business or politics shaking hands is often used to assert dominance and repress opposing views, even before words are spoken. By foregrounding the physical absurdity and gender dynamics involved in this social convention, the film seeks to deflate the power of the power handshake.
