We’re very excited to be sharing the trailer for Through The Night, a breathtaking documentary from Loira Limbal, a Sundance Institute Fellow and a former Ford Foundation JustFilms/Rockwood Fellow.
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.
Have you considered hosting a screening? Whether it’s with your friends, family, fellow coworkers, classroom, or local community, you can use Through The Night to help ignite a conversation about the global care crisis, and demand that policy makers start prioritising the needs of our caregivers and essential workers.
