What if the Tao, the way of the universe, was represented as a Princess? How can we personify this energy of harmony and natural order, and turn it into our friend? Bareum is a film asking how we could all have a unique relationship with the Tao. This is Tiana's version.

Director Statement

Ever since I read the Tao Te Ching in 2017, I've been inspired by the calmness of the Tao amidst the chaos of life on Earth. Reminding myself that the universe keeps flowing, no matter what, brings me peace. I wanted to explore that experience in Bareum.
Our process was organic. I approached it with the energy of letting it unfold on its own in due time. It's a film I'll always appreciate, because I know it came from a genuine urge to interact with the Tao.
