"A WARM, COMPLEX AND HOPEFUL SLICE OF TEEN LIFE". ~ Elizabeth Kerr, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"... a painfully honest exploration of queer adolescence that feels a little like a feminist neo-realist film". ~ Andrew Bundy, THE PLAYLIST
The Critically Acclaimed, Coming-of-Age Drama from Award-Winning Director Kim Bora Debuts on Digital & Blu-ray August 4
Positioned against the backdrop of a rapidly expanding Seoul in 1994, a lonely 14-year-old girl moves through life like a hummingbird searching for a taste of sweetness wherever she may find it in the critically-acclaimed coming-of-age story "House of Hummingbird", debuting on Digital and Blu-ray™ August 4 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Deprived of attention from her family, the girl 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 a new teacher arrives, she becomes the first adult the young girl feels really understands her. Kim Bora makes her feature film directing debut, displaying "a world of potential" (FictionMachine).
