THROUGH THE NIGHT is a cinema verité portrait of three working NY mothers whose lives 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 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.


"THROUGH THE NIGHT bears witness to the struggles of these working people, to their tenderness and mercy. Limbal keeps her gaze steady, and her vérité rigor becomes an act of solidarity." Teo Bugbee. A New York Times Critic's Pick.
