Through the Night
Director: Loira Limbal
Through The Night is a love letter to single mothers and caregivers. To make ends meet, people in the U.S. are working longer hours across multiple jobs. This modern reality of non-stop work has resulted in an unexpected phenomenon: the flourishing of 24-hour daycare centers. Through the Night, a documentary by Bronx-based Afro-Latina DJ, filmmaker, and film executive Loira Limbal, explores the personal cost of our modern economy through the stories of two working mothers and a child care provider – whose lives intersect at a 24-hour daycare center.
“Without making it too obvious, Limbal’s documentary shines a light on the unspoken backbone of our economy.” Monica Castillo, Remezcla
“Through the Night is both celebration and indictment. A sympathetic depiction of “women’s work,” in all its unsung dignity, it’s also a quietly damning portrait of a merciless economy’s effect on working-class mothers…” ~ Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
