To see a World in a Grain of Sand, And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, And Eternity in an hour…
William Blake

Through My Window is an experimental short documentary film, which was shot during the early days of motherhood. This piece is a conversation about what does it mean to be a mother and expectations that comes with it. The film intuitively captures daily repetitions, monotonous activities, and brief, cherished child moments, which accompanied my experiences, while trying to make sense of my new role as a mother. The time was fleeting, my child was growing and I was slowly realising motherhood significance and a meaning towards a deeper understanding of the ephemeral everyday experiences that ultimately shape our human existence.
