HIVE: Film Screening & Discussion

On Wednesday 19 May 2022, we hosted the film screening and post-screening discussion of the film “Hive” at our centre in Longsight. It is an award-winning film and a true story of resilience and hope with strong parallels to the story of many Syrian women and families. HIVE is a powerful tribute to everyday women who quietly, and against the odds, change lives.
