Exclusive Q&A with Hive director Blerta Basholli

Hive is a powerful drama based on the true story of Fahrije Hoti, whose husband has been missing since the war in Kosovo. In her patriarchal village, struggling to provide for her family, she pulls the widows in her community together to launch a business selling a local food product…but their will to begin to live independently is met with hostility.

Hive is the debut feature from Blera Basholli, and is a compelling, distinctive film from a major emerging voice in European cinema.

Recorded in early 2022 as part of a touring partnership between access CINEMA and Dublin International Film Festival, MyCinema presents an exclusive Q&A with Blera Basholli in which she discusses the film and the true story that inspired it. The Q&A is available to watch for free, with the feature itself also available to rent via the platform.

This Q&A is presented with open captions.
