SCREENING In Person at Rofhiwa Book Cafe | 406 S. Driver, Durham, NC 27703

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.

DIRECTED AND PRODUCED BY LOIRA LIMBAL, an Afro-Dominican filmmaker and DJ interested in the creation of art that is nuanced and revelatory for communities of color.  Limbal is the Senior Vice President of Programs at Firelight Media,  a Sundance Institute Fellow, NAACP Image Award nominee, a DOC NYC Documentary New Leader, Chicken & Egg Award recipient, and a former Ford Foundation JustFilms/Rockwood Fellow.  

Limbal received a B.A. in History from Brown University and is a graduate of the Third World Newsreel's Film and Video Production Training Program. She lives in the Bronx with her two children. Her first film, ESTILO HIP HOP, was a co-production of ITVS and aired on PBS in 2009. 

THROUGH THE NIGHT is a New York Times Critics’ Pick and was selected for a world premiere at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival.
