Hive tells the story of Fahrije’s (Yllka Gashi) whose husband has been missing since the war in Kosovo, and along with their grief, her family is struggling financially.

In the absence of her husband, whose fate is uncertain, Fahrije has become everything to her father-in-law Haxhi (Cun Lajci) and her two children, from homemaker to comforter.

To provide for them, Fahije hopes to start a small business selling the roasted red pepper relish ajvar to city supermarkets, but in the traditional patriarchal village where she lives, her ambition and efforts to empower herself and other women are met with resentment and suspicion.

She struggles not only to keep her family afloat but also against a hostile community who are undermining her efforts and hoping for her failure. The cooperative’s tentative steps to defy convention and village gossip form the emotional heart of a remarkable true story.

Accessible Cinema: Belltable are committed to providing access for all and are delighted to announce that we will be providing open captioning for the 5pm screenings every Monday, where possible, from January 10th 2022. Open Captioned (OC) symbols on screenings on the Lime Tree Theatre website and printed programme will denote what films will have this capability. IFI cannot control what films are available with open captions but will always offer this capability when it is available from the distributor. 

Open captions appear on the screen including dialogue and sound effects. Lime Tree Theatre | Belltable strive to be more inclusive, our hope in 2022 is to give all cinema lovers an opportunity to enjoy our IFI programme. For more information on accessible screenings please contact
