Sundance triple award winner, and Kosovo's official submission for the Academy Awards, HIVE is a searing drama based on the true story of Fahrije (Yllka Gashi), who, like many of the other women in her patriarchal village, has lived with fading hope and burgeoning grief since her husband went missing during the war in Kosovo. In order to provide for her struggling family, she pulls the other widows in her community together to launch a business selling a local food product. Together, they find healing and solace in considering a future without their husbands but their will to begin living independently is met with hostility; in Albanian with subtitles.

Reviews
"It's based on a true story of feminist defiance and healing that counts as one of the more affecting tales of recovery to come from the conflict."
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Basholli's film is a spare and unsparing portrait of a survivor who refuses to bend to ancient traditions. As storytelling, this is as good as it gets."
Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News
"What Basholli has made is a thoughtful, humanistic exploration of the fortitude needed to summon hope in a time and place resigned to hopelessness."
Roxana Hadadi, AV Club
