Host a FREE screening of Through The Night this March
March is fast-approaching and there’s no better opportunity to host a screening of Loira Limbal’s thought-provoking documentary Through The Night for FREE and spark conversation with your co-workers, students or community.
This March, we celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (8 March). The theme “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope” is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and essential workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.
What’s more, Mothers Day takes place on Sunday 27th March another just cause to celebrate womanhood and spark conversation with this impactful women-led story.
We make hosting a screening (virtual or in person) as easy for you as possible. It’s a wonderful way to engage your organisation or educational institution. So, what are you waiting for?

About the film
Through The Night is the award-winning new film from Loira Limbal. It’s 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.
The childcare system in the UK is failing many
The UK has the second highest childcare costs in the world (OECD). All while 1 in 10 childcare providers officially live in poverty (Nursery World).
A recent petition calling for an independent review into childcare received over 110,000 signatures with organisers demanding that the government do more to ensure we have a childcare sector that works for families, children and the economy (Petition.org). With the recent UK lockdowns meaning that 65 percent of working mothers are now juggling working from home with caring commitments, childcare is likely to remain high on the agenda (TUC).
