Recently in the “Moscow” cinema hosted the premiere of the third season of “the handmaid’s Tale”, published in Russia, exclusive online service Videomore 6 June.
“The handmaid’s tale” is one of the most popular series in the world and is a grim dystopia on the topical theme. The story is based on the novel by Booker prize-winner Margaret Atwood. The series has received numerous awards, including eleven Emmy awards and three awards “Golden globe” in various categories, including best drama series. Russian pop stars, among whom was Cheryl Cole, Natalia Rudova, Ekaterina Odintsova, Daria Konovalova Kristina Shapovalova, Natalia Bardo, Ksenia Knyazeva and others at the premiere were able to see the first two series of the third season.
Also online service Videomore staged in Moscow incredible shoot with models dressed as Maids: Russian State Library, hall of columns, Vasilevsky descent, metro station Mayakovskaya – a group of girls in bright red shawls and white bonnets walked through the iconic places of Moscow.
The inspiration for a series of shots was an incredible visual aesthetic of the series. Dark, sometimes makes us shudder, but it certainly draws viewers to the screen. The basis of the concept was the subject of prohibitions and freedoms. The plot of Maids are not only deprived of basic rights, they are not even allowed the simple human joy –to chat, to laugh, to read, listen to music, ride public transportation, walk. The project girl even being in the same uniform appear not broken and intimidated victims and independent figures. They allow themselves everything that was inaccessible to them. The heroine seemed ready to challenge the system and get back on the path of gaining freedom. It is hoped that in the third season it will be.
