HOUSE OF HUMMINGBIRD is a critically-acclaimed coming-of-age drama directed by Bora Kim and set in South Korea. Positioned against a rapidly expanding Seoul in 1994, a lonely 14-year-old Eun-hee moves through life like a hummingbird, searching for sweetness wherever she may find it. Deprived of attention from her family, she roams the neighborhood with her best friend, attempting romantic relationships with girls and boys alike, and is sent to the hospital with an unclear diagnosis. However, when the new teacher Young-ji arrives, she becomes the first adult Eun-hee feels understands her.

The film was awarded Best International Narrative Feature at Tribeca Film Festival 2019 by a panel that included renowned actress Angela Bassett and two other awards. In addition, the movie earned Grand Prix for Best Feature Film (Generation 14+ category) at Berlinale and the Audience Award at The Busan International Film Festival.
