Offred is 1000% over it in new ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ teaser

Published

on

The Handmaid’s Tale just served up an International Women’s Day teaser of Offred and her sisters fighting back. After a first season that explored women losing all their agency, Season 2 shows shows the women of Gilead refusing to be oppressed any longer.

The teaser is mostly a few flashes of footage and imagery – including Offred in front of a noose and a weeping Moira (Samira Wiley) – narrated with the emotionless cadence Elisabeth Moss perfected as Offred. She lists the requirements of the handmaid like commandments: “Wear the red dress, wear the wings,” and eventually, “Shut your mouth, be a good girl, roll over and spread your legs, yes ma’am, may the lord open.”

And then the teaser ends with a burst of frustration: “Seriously, what the actual f–”

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 premieres April 25 on Hulu.

But Indian cinema has always been more than that, just as Italian film extends beyond neorealism or and the French New Wave is just one piece of a rich history. Cinephiles may know Satyajit Ray’s Apu trilogy, which offers a glimpse of the type of gritty auteurship that doesn’t pay the Bollywood bills, but speaks to some truly fine artistry. Indian short films remain a source of this ingenuity and excellence, and Netflix’s Lust Stories is a fresh new installment.

Like Bombay Talkies before it, Lust Stories is an anthology of short films from known Indian directors Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Karan Johar. They are exceedingly simple stories: a teacher’s obsession with…..”
