WINNER · GRAND JURY PRIZE, AUDIENCE AWARD, DIRECTING AWARD · SUNDANCE

The powerful true story of a woman fighting for independence in the wake of the Kosovo war, Hive is the first film to win all three major awards at Sundance.

Beekeeper Fahrije Hoti’s husband has been missing for seven years, following a devastating massacre. Her grief, strict patriarchal expectations and faltering beehives threaten to crush her spirit, but Fahrije upends expectations by establishing a women’s co-operative with fellow war widows. Planning to use traditional recipes to forge their autonomy, but facing near insurmountable obstacles, their determination drives a wave of change.

Debut director Blerta Basholli crafts a concentrated, naturalistic liberation story – driven by Yllka Gashi’s superb performance inspired by real-life beekeeper Fahrije Hoti.
