Awarded with Best International Narrative Feature at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, Well Go Entertainment presents House of Hummingbird — a critically-acclaimed coming-of-age drama directed by Bora Kim and set in South Korea.
Positioned against the backdrop of a rapidly expanding Seoul in 1994, a lonely 14-year-old Eun-hee moves through life like a hummingbird searching for a taste of sweetness wherever she may find it. Deprived of attention from her family, she roams the neighborhood with her best friend, attempts romantic relationships with both girls and boys alike and is sent to the hospital with an unclear diagnosis. When new teacher Young-ji arrives, she becomes the first adult Eun-hee feels really understands her.
Along with 3 awards at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, the movie earned Grand Prix for Best Feature Film (Generation 14+ category) at Berlinale and the Audience Award at The Busan International Film Festival.
