When Federal Agent Aaron Falk returns to his home town after an absence of over twenty years to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke, who allegedly killed his wife and child before taking his own life — a victim of the madness that has ravaged this community after more than a decade of drought.   When Falk reluctantly agrees to stay and investigate the crime, he opens up an old wound — the death of 17 year-old Ellie Deacon.   Falk begins to suspect these two crimes, separated by decades, are connected.   As he struggles to prove not only Luke’s innocence but also his own, Falk finds himself pitted against the prejudice towards him and and pent-up rage of a terrified community.

Drama — (2021) — 84 mins — Cert 15

Director: Blerta Basholli
Cast includes Yllka Gashi, Çun Lajçi, Aurita Agushi


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 together the other widows in her community to launch a business selling a local food product.   Finding 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 Eastern Europe’s 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.   HIVE is a pithy, devastating portrait of loss and our uphill journeys to freedom.
