About the Event
Join us for a special virtual screening of Through the Night, a New York Times and Hollywood Reporter Critics Pick from Tribeca and SXSW.
Through the Night is an intimate cinema verité portrait of three working mothers whose lives all intersect at a 24-hour daycare centre: 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.
