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.

“Intimately observed. An up-close look at just what it takes, the relentless hard work and unwavering love.” -- Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

“[Loira] Limbal’s loving but outraged film explores the backbreaking work and tireless support required for single mothers to raise their kids, a feat that’s only possible because of people who are willing to offer their community some of the help and compassion the United States government won’t.” -- David Ehrlich, indieWIRE
