Korean film “House of Hummingbird” won for Best International Narrative Feature at the 18th Tribeca Film Festival. According to the AP on Friday (local time), director Kim Bo-ra (picture)’s “House of Hummingbird” received the Best International Narrative Feature at the U.S. film festival.
“House of Hummingbird,” Kim’s first feature film, depicts a story of a middle school girl Eun-hee (starred by Park Ji-hu) after meeting a Chinese writing teacher Young-ji (starred by Kim Sae-byuk) in 1994, when the Seongsu Bridge collapsed in Korea.
Earlier this year, the film was awarded the Grand Prix for Best Film from the International Jury in the Generation 14Plus section at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival. Last month, the film won the “Golden Tulip Award (Grand Prix International Competition)” at the Istanbul Film Festival. Meanwhile, teenage director Phillip Youmans’ “Burning Cane” received the Founders Award for Best U.S. Narrative Feature and won a 20,000 prize money at the Tribeca Film Festival.
