              Runtime: 5 min. Directed by: Jin Yoo-Kim Director of Photography: Joe Tran Edited by: Jin Yoo- Kim Long synopsis: "Bearing Dreams" sets out to uncover the world of superstition and dream interpretation in the Korean culture. The Tae-Mong is a type of prophetic dreams Koreans have that determines the sex, personality, and destiny of their unborn child. The film explores the origin of Tae-Mong by interviewing the filmmaker's "Old Korea" relatives, who migrated from Korea in the early 80's and still hold on to the practices they've grown up with. As they recall dreams of their siblings and offsprings, the filmmaker's curiosity is triggered and she decides to figure out her own destiny as dictated by her mother's Tae-Mong for her. Her Tae-Mong seems promising but do dreams really come true? According to these dreamers, they do...even if it means buying the Tae-Mong from someone else. Premiered at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival in 2007 as part of the Armed with a Camera Fellowship.
