You’re Invited to a Screening of “Through the Night”

Join us for a virtual screening of “Through the Night” as well as a talkback hosted by Dr. Ellen Newell from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 8, via Zoom.

“Through the Night,” a documentary by Loria Limbal, focuses on what our modern economy has done to working mothers through the lens of two women’s lives when they intersect with each other and a child care provider at a 24-hour daycare center. 

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 the U.S. and the close bonds forged between parents, children and caregivers.
