Tasting the Moon is a series of moving portraits of the First Generation of Contemporary Female Artists in Afghanistan. Comprised of three animated segments, Dawn spotlights Shamsia Hassani, Nabila Horakhsh, and Malina Suliman as individual artists.
Part 1: SHAMSIA & FISH
Part 2: NABILA & TREE
Part 3: MALINA & CHESS
Each segment is created as an impressionistic dream sequence by drawing inspiration from re-occurring metaphors in each artist's work.
In this collaborative attempt, Chinese American Artist Dawn Chan explores the symbiotic relationship between female minority artists and their roots.
Private release: Dec 2015.
