About the Film
“Through the Night” is an intimate cinema verité portrait of three working mothers whose lives all intersect at a 24-hour daycare center: a mother working the overnight shift as an essential worker at a hospital; another holding down three jobs just to support her family; and a woman who for over two decades has cared for the children of parents with nowhere else to turn.
A tender portrait of titanic strength, love, and selflessness, “Through the Night” showcases the multiplicity of “women’s work” — paid, underpaid, and unpaid; emotional and physical; domestic and career-oriented — all while negotiating the terms of a dignified existence under the three arrows of racism, sexism, and capitalism in America.
Directed and produced by Loira Limbal, a Sundance Institute Fellow and a former Ford Foundation JustFilms/Rockwood Fellow.
A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to the Essential Care Fund to support childcare facilities nationally. Money raised will go directly to daycare providers to help them continue to provide services for essential workers during the pandemic.
“Intimately observed. An up-close look at just what it takes, the relentless hard work and unwavering love.” — Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
