Eye Test is a short fiction film which explores the affective atmosphere of a mother-daughter relationship, death and bereavment through the realm of memory, following her own mother’s death a few years back. The narrative delves into the mindscape of the 27 year old Nivedita when she visits an eye clinic. The eye clinic territory transforms into a sensorial one for her, invoking memories of her single mother and her own lonely childhood.
