Event Information

Through The Night is a cinema verité portrait of three working NY mothers whose lives 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 to support her family; and a woman who for over two decades has cared for the children of parents with nowhere else to turn. 

The film is a love letter to single mothers and caregivers. It showcases the multiplicity of ‘women’s work’ - paid, underpaid and, crucially, 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.
