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.


When: 11 March, 18 March, 25 March and 1 April on HBO GO

Watch for: Nathanya Alexander, Chloe East, Nava Mau

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.

Love Alarm Season 2

When: 12 March on Netflix

Watch for: Kim So-hyun, Jung Ga-ram, Song Kang

The wait ends this March! Who would you choose if you were Jo-jo, the female lead caught between two very eligible bachelors? This new season brings us closer to an endgame pairing, while continuing to explore the eponymous Love Alarm app’s impact on people’s lives. Unsurprisingly, not everyone is thrilled to know which person is likely to fall in love with them over time—a feature unlocked in the new and improved Love App 2.0.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League

When: 18 March on HBO GO

Watch for: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot

Ask, and you will receive. Which is what fans and cast members of Justice League did—petitioning persistently to get Zack Snyder’s Justice League released to the public. Dubbed “Snyder Cut”, this four-hour-long version of the 2017 film presents it as the original director, Zack Snyder, envisioned.

A quick refresher on the plot: Following Superman’s ultimate sacrifice, Bruce Wayne (Batman) and Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world. But first, each of them must grapple with demons from their own pasts.
