When one’s sole focus is to provide for their children, the stakes are extremely high. The need for multiple jobs to make ends meet has become a common reality for many families in this country, which leads to a very important question: who looks after the children while their parents work? Through the Night examines the economic and emotional toll affecting some American families, told through the lens of a 24-hour daycare center in Westchester, New York. At the center of it all is Nunu, the primary caregiver and a hero to many families in need of a safe space to bring their children.

Quietly compelling and anchored by the soulful and calming presence of its central figure, the film is a snapshot of our times. In her feature directorial debut, Loira Limbal gives us remarkable access to these families and their stories, richly detailing their personal journeys.—Loren Hammonds
