HIVE

Dec 3 to Dec 6
Friday thru Monday 6:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Blerta Basholli - 2021 - 84m - Kosovo, Switzerland, Macedonia, Albania - in Albanian with English Subtitles - NO MATINEES

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.

Winner of the Audience Award, Directing Award, and World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, HIVE is a pithy, devastating portrait of loss and our uphill journeys to freedom.

“Stirring….What holds you rapt is Gashi’s powerful, physically grounded performance, which lyrically articulates her taciturn character’s inner workings.” — Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“An engrossing, utterly classic tale of overcoming adversity. In its own quiet way, Hive builds a strong storyline around the self-reliance and determination of an uneducated country woman, played with glammed-down but riveting cool by a granite-faced Yllka Gashi.” — Deborah Young, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Plenty of evocative moments...Gashi is powerfully, effectively steely as a woman who must take matters into her own hands, even when they are tied by society.” — Ryan Lattanzio, INDIEWIRE

“An immersive portrait, buoyed by a central performance that’s hypnotizing in its sparse naturalism… a thoughtful, humanistic exploration [of the fortitude needed to summon hope].” — Roxana Hadadi, A.V. CLUB

“Yllka Gashi... is nothing short of superlative.” — Suvo Pine, HIGH ON FILMS

“A remarkable performance from Gashi…simultaneously strong and vulnerable, hesitant and determined.” — Betsy Bozdech, ALLIANCE OF WOMEN FILM JOURNALISTS

“Inspiring and deeply affecting, the movie is a wonderful showcase of human resilience and female empowerment, both timely and timeless.” — Christopher Llewellyn Reed, HAMMER TO NAIL

SILENT NIGHT

Dec 3 to Dec 6
Friday thru Monday 4:30, 8:30pm

Dir. Camille Griffin - 2021 - 90m - UK

An all-star pitch-black comedy as only the UK can do.  Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey), Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders), Lily Rose-Depp, Sope Dirisu (Gangs of London), and Lucy Punch fill out a top-tier cast.

At a cozy house in the English countryside, everything's ready for the holidays. The tree is decorated, a feast is prepared, and friends and family are streaming in. It's perfect, except for one thing: everyone's going to die. A poisonous cloud is slowly descending on the UK, and with no escape possible everyone's gathered for one last celebration followed by a pill that will give them a nice, quiet death.

But even in the face of extinction, a family dinner is still a family dinner, and disagreements will erupt, secrets revealed, and hilarity will ensue.

"Run, don't walk to catch Camille Griffin's tragi-comic Christmas dinner feast, Silent Night, with Jojo Rabbit's Roman Griffin Davis before the world ends. The youngster offers up one of the best performances of the year." - Brandon Judell, Brandon Judell (Medium)

"An enjoyable film and marks the entrance of an exciting filmmaker to watch. The gallows humour and emotional heart are balanced nicely, creating a well rounded film that under normal circumstances, would be a delight for all." - Rachel Ho, That Shelf

"With a stunningly honest performance from the director's son -- Jojo Rabbit star Roman Griffin Davis -- Silent Night balances the eccentricities of a Christmas get-together with nihilistic acceptance of certain doom." - Siddhant Adlakha, IGN Movies

"One cozy holiday unravels into something far more horrifying and unexpected. When the comedy seems to spin its wheels and stall, Griffin sucker punches her audience the moment she pulls back the curtain, recontextualizing everything that came before." - Megan Navarro, Bloody Disgusting
