Hive, dir. Blerta Basholli, Switzerland / Kosovo / North Macedonia / Albania, 84 min., English and Albanian with English subtitles, 15


The first film to sweep the World Cinema awards at Sundance, where it won the Directing, Audience and Grand Jury Prizes, Blerta Basholli’s searing drama tells the true story of a woman who tries to remake her life following the disappearance of her husband during the Kosovo War.

Fahrije (Yllka Gashi) and her family have struggled to get by since her husband vanished during the conflict that reshaped their homeland. To support herself, Fahrije brings together other local widows to set up a modest food business. But when her conservative and deeply patriarchal community scorns her attempts at self-sufficient independence, it’s not only Fahrije’s future that’s at risk – it’s the fragile stability of their society. Led by an outstanding central performance from Gashi, Hive is a powerful tribute to everyday women who quietly change lives.
