"An Interview with Ann Huang, Director of The Pines of Spring" - Los Angeles Film Awards

"The Pines of Springs CRITIQUE REVIEW" - Direct Monthly Online Film Festival

"Great use of locations. Enjoyed the dichotomy of poetry and the images." - Dances with Films

"The expressionistic camerawork and juxtaposition of shots make of The Pines of Spring an enjoyable view. The films structure consists of an menagerie blend of poetic narrative and romantic themed images. The directors narrative is nonexistent but instead favors providing the viewer with a dreamlike quality of images that gives the short the typical 'art house' feel. The sound, music and film editing is consistent and contributes to the films overall feel. The strength of the film is its visual and aural appeal, but does not fully engage the viewer - the short alludes to some of the early work of Guy Maddin."
