HIVE: Feb 11 and 12
Feb 11 and 12 at 6:30 at the IU Radio & Television Theater
In a small village in Kosovo, years after her husband went missing during wartime, Fahrije awaits evidence of his death. Without it, not only is she unable to mourn, but the hovering patriarchy deems it disrespectful, morally loose even, to move forward: to get a job, a driver’s license — to provide for her family. Stoically determined, with inspiring pluck and humor, Fahrije openly drives around town and begins a business selling ajvar (roasted red pepper paste). If that weren’t enough, she pulls together other widows to help. The men in the village condemn Fahrije’s efforts to empower herself and threaten her newfound sovereignty. Based on one woman’s true story, Hive is a universal tale of quiet, potent resistance.
