Kindred - Official Trailer I IFC Midnight
Hulu’s Kindred is a prestige TV adaptation of the sci-fi classic from Octavia Butler. The series followsyoung Black writer Dara (Mallori Johnson) who has just moved into a new home with her white husband Kevin (Micah Stock) in the 1970s. The story, however, doesn’t stay in the those 70s. Past and present collide as Dara begins experiencing uncontrollable hallucinations—or more than that—of horrific events that befell her enslaved ancestors more than a hundred years earlier.
Butler’s original novel was a seismic exploration of slave narratives and what it took for countless Black Americans to survive, and the adaptation seems poised to bring it to the screen to powerful effect.
