The First Full Moon

Institute History


The First Full Moon tells the story of Zulal Kazazian who can’t seem to get pregnant or make art that is taken seriously. Devastating events lead her from New York back to Aleppo, a place she’s avoided for 20 years, to break a “curse” she has always believed was placed on her. The journey brings her face to face with her family’s darkest secrets.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
