UK Premiere

A major award-winner at Sundance, Hive is an outstanding first feature from director Blerta Basholli. In March 1999, the Kosovan village of Krusha e Madhe was the site of a massacre that left 240 people dead or missing. Seven years later, the villagers live with not knowing the fate of their loved ones. Fahrije (Yllka Gashi) has become everything to her family - home maker, plumber and provider. She hopes to start a small business selling the relish ajvar. Her determination to move on inspires the other women but is also a source of bitter conflict in a deeply patriarchal community.

This film is also screening online via Glasgow Film At Home.
