New Trailer and Poster for Sundance Winning Drama HIVE

The Kosovo set drama comes to UK/ROI cinemas in March.

Winner of the Audience Award, Directing Award and World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2021, director Blerta Basholli's Kosovo set drama Hive is inspired by a true story.

Yllka Gashi plays a woman grieving for her husband, who disappeared during the war. Along with the other women in her village, she begins selling food, only to ruffle the feathers of the local male populace.

Hive is in UK/ROI cinemas from March 18th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

The powerful drama is 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.

The men in the village condemn Fahrije’s efforts to empower herself and the women around her, starting a feud that threatens their newfound sovereignty—and the financial future of Fahrije’s family. Against the backdrop of civil unrest and lingering misogyny, Fahrije and the women of her village join in a struggle to find hope in the face of an uncertain future.
