Movie Info

In New Rochelle, New York, a 24-hour daycare is a lifesaver for parents who work multiple jobs and odd hours to make ends meet. The film follows a mother who works the overnight shift at a hospital; another holding down three jobs to support her family; and a woman who for two decades has cared for children of parents with nowhere else to turn. Over the span of two years, across working holidays, seven day work weeks, and around-the-clock shifts, the film reveals the personal cost of rising wealth inequality in America and the close bonds forged between parents, children, and caregivers.


Critic Reviews for Through the Night

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

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...

There is a unique nature to director Loira Limbal's documentary Through the Night, a quiet stillness. Even with the children running around on-screen, a peace that exudes.

Reveals the kinds of heroes that should be celebrated far more.

May 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Without making it too obvious, Limbal's documentary shines a light on the unspoken backbone of our economy.

Through her bottom-up view of the pre-coronavirus economy, Limbal invites viewers to observe and then empathize.

May 2, 2020 | Full Review…

"Through the Night" won me over though, not because director Loira Limbal has any illusions about objectivity, but because she prefers to step back and show the toll inequality takes on the very people our culture supposedly reveres most - families.
