Parent & Baby/ Through The Night

Through the Night is an intimate cinéma verité portrait of three working mothers whose lives all intersect at a 24-hour day care 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.

Please note: this is a Parent and Baby Screening and is designed ONLY for parents, grandparents and carers attending with babies aged 12 months and under. More information on our Parent and Baby Screenings can be found here.
