The Hive

Back to listing

In early October 2020, the Zurich Film Festival kindly invited us to screen a film from our 2020 programme. We chose this wonderful, moving film about a young woman (played by the marvellous Meryem Uzerli) who leaves behind city life to become a beekeeper. The director Eylem Kaftan was thus the only guest from FIFF 2020 with whom the team met face to face. Her humanity shines through both in person and on screen.

Screening in the presence of the director: 23.07 at 17:45
