Hive is a searing drama based on the true story of Fahrije, who, like many of the other women in her village, has lived with fading hope and grief since her husband went missing during the war in Kosovo. To provide for her struggling family, she pulls together the other widows in her community to launch a business selling a local food product, finding healing and solace in considering a future without their husbands- but their will to begin living independently is met with hostility. Hive is a devastating portrait of loss and our uphill journeys to freedom.

Reclaim the Frame: The screening on Wednesday 6 April, 8.30pm will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with film director Blerta Basholli.
