"A silent young woman, searching for her birth mother, wanders through a bleak, urban landscape, her body in pain. Text, sound and movement are combined in 'undertow' to create a sense of alienation and displacement."
- Ming Yuen S. Ma, 1996 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film & Video Festival
"... powerful in how it externalizes personal reflection, 'undertow' speaks to issues concerning young people."
- Kris Sorenson, Media Educator
"Continuing from her first piece, 'living in half tones,' 'Undertow' allows a creative process to bridge the gap between the real and the unknown. In this new piece, Ahn goes to a new level with vigorous use of sound to forward the images."
