Event Details

Presented a part of the Boston Latino International Film Festival with the Boston’s Women and Roxbury International film festivals and SEIU Local 888.

To make ends meet, Americans are working longer hours across multiple jobs. This modern reality of nonstop work has resulted in an unexpected phenomenon: the flourishing of 24-hour-daycare centers. Through The Night is a vérité documentary that explores the personal cost of our modern economy through the stories of two mothers and a child care provider whose lives intersect at a 24-hour-daycare center. Discussion with director and producer Loira Limbal to follow.

Watch the trailer!


This season, we are thrilled to bring you twelve films with a focus on social justice and equity.
