The many dimensions of care work intersect in Loira Limbal’s film, an inspiring window into the world of working mothers. Using a mix of observation and personal narrative, Through the Night drops us smack into the centre of the US child-care crisis, immersing us in the goings-on of one 24-hour daycare and the work of its extraordinary proprietor, Delores “Nunu” Hogan. With the help of her husband Patrick (“Pop Pop”), Nunu has spent over two decades caring for the children of working parents—and often caring for the parents themselves. Producer/director Loira Limbal’s patient and multi-layered film not only confirms what it looks like to give kids the solid foundation they need to grow and thrive, but deftly outlines the ways in which harsh economic and labour policies are currently hindering, not helping, working class mothers. -TA
