In a secluded village in the Italian Alps, an unlikely brotherhood forms between two young boys: Pietro, a boy from the city, and Bruno, who has only ever known life in the mountains. Over the years Bruno remains faithful to his home while Pietro aspires to greater heights, but as decades pass and lives unfold, their paths ultimately lead them back to where they first met – and back to each other. Set against a truly magnificent Italian landscape, THE EIGHT MOUNTAINS is a profoundly moving portrait of a lifelong friendship.

Sundance triple award winner Hive is a searing drama based on the true story of Fahrije, 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 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.
★★★★ “This debut feature from Kosovo native Blerta Basholli evokes familiar, lighter tales of communal unity like The Full Monty or Calendar Girls, but with a more grounded, naturalistic approach, where rebellion can be found in the smallest acts and gestures” – Empireonline.com
★★★★ “Basholli understands that healing is possible, even if closure isn’t” – The Guardian
