Initiated and directed by Vicky Zhao Wei, Hear Her is China’s take on Snatches: Moments from Women's Lives. The monologues shine a light on universal topics in women’s lives, but in an Asian society where the stakes are high for those who dare speak out, challenge the status quo or make a stand.

In Genera+ion (nope, not a typo and it's pronounced "generation"), sit tight for a front-row view of woke high-schoolers exploring their sexuality from the confines of their conservative community. In other words: so drama, so scandalous. This series produced by Lena Dunham is created by 19-year-old Zelda Barnz and one of her two dads, filmmaker Daniel Barnz. The father-daughter duo are part of a fully queer family.

When: 18 March on HBO GO
