Hive(15) at Number 8, Pershore
An award-winning true story of everyday women in Kosovo who quietly change lives. Like many of the other women in her village, Fahrije (Yllka Gashi) 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, Fahrije 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 in their traditional village their will to begin living independently is met with hostility.
Winner of the Audience Award, Directing Award, and World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Hive is a pithy, devastating portrait of loss and our uphill journeys to freedom.
Directed by Blerta Basholli.
