The visual aspect of the film format actually renders the poems simpler, yet much more interesting. This way, the films are becoming an artistic interpretation of the poems themselves. The juxtaposition of these two art media pieces has created another dimension of perception, if not merely depth.

Palpitations of Dust, the debut experimental short film from Saffron Splash Media, received an official selection for screening at the fifth annual Berlin Short Film Festival (BSFF). The festival will take place at the Babylon Cinema in Berlin, Germany from June 28th through July 1st, running three short film screenings each night. Palpitations of Dust will be screened on Friday, June 29th at 8:00pm.
Palpitations of Dust has also been nominated for Best US Short Film at Love International Film Festival (LIFF) which will take place at Ahrya Fine Arts in Beverly Hills, California from July 24th through July 27th. Palpitations of Dust will be screened on July 25th at 4:00 pm PST.
The 2018 LIFF will focus on uniting independent filmmakers from the international film community. The festival selects short films that they believe bring the world closer together, promoting love and healing through cinema and art. This year, LIFF sought films with messages of of peace, love, acceptance, and tolerance towards friends, family, nature, and cultures. Palpitations of Dust is a short experimental film based on surrealist poetry and aligns seamlessly with LIFF’s theme.
Due to the lyrical, elusive nature of Huang's poetry, Huang says her films are expressive and experimental. "The visual aspect of the film format actually renders the poems (the film script) simpler, yet much more interesting. This way, the films are becoming an artistic interpretation of the poems themselves. And the juxtaposition of these two art media pieces has created another dimension of perception, if not merely depth."
