To make ends meet, people in the U.S. are working longer hours across multiple jobs. This modern reality of non-stop work has resulted in an unexpected phenomenon: the flourishing of 24-hour daycare centers. THROUGH THE NIGHT is a verité documentary that explores the personal cost of our modern economy through the stories of two working mothers and a child care provider - whose lives intersect 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.
ABOUT: SISTA FIRE
SISTA FIRE is co-creating a network of women of color to build our collective power for social, economic and political transformation. At the center of our work are SISTA Circles; through the circles we will provide space for deep interpersonal and leadership development.
SISTA FIRE aims to connect the patterns and practices of community strength from the past, building on the present, and–with great intentions–planting the seeds for the future. We take lessons from our grandmas holding it down in Black Lives Matter, our Indigenous aunties fighting for their own homelands here, our trans sisters who fight for their rights to be who they are, and our immigrant and refugee mommas demonstrating their strength with unrelenting love and profound sacrifices.
