Based on a stirring true story comes an award-winning tale of resilence and hope from an emerging voice in world cinema, director Blerta Basholli.
Fahrije’s husband has been missing since the war in Kosovo, and along with their grief, her family is struggling financially. In order to provide for them she launches a small agricultural business, but in the traditional patriarchal village where she lives, her ambition and efforts to empower herself and other women are not seen as positive things. She struggles not only to keep her family afloat but also against a hostile community who is rooting for her to fail.
Bold and honest, HIVE a powerful tribute to everyday women who quietly change lives.
★★★★★ –“Blerta Basholli’s feature is an expertly crafted, compassionate testament to the perseverance and defiance of its courageous female collective.”
