Through the Night

September 22 / 7:30PM / Missouri Theatre / No Ticket Required

True/False Film Fest and the University of Missouri’s Jonathan B. Murray Center for Documentary Journalism are thrilled to collaborate in spotlighting essential new nonfiction with an annual community screening at the beautiful and historic Missouri Theatre. This year, we have the pleasure to present a one-night-only screening of Through the Night.

In this tender, heartwarming portrait of love, labor, and sacrifice, overworked single mothers grapple with day-to-day struggles while trying to provide for their families. Loira Limbal’s debut feature is a verité style documentary told through the lens of a 24-hour daycare center in Westchester, New York. Limbal masterfully captures intimate stories of two working mothers and their beloved caregiver, Nunu, as their lives intersect. One of the most acclaimed documentaries of the past year, Through the Night illustrates the necessity of caregivers and examines the economic and emotional challenges affecting families throughout the country.

Doors & music by Lake Mary at 7PM. Stick around for a virtual conversation with director Loira Limbal after the film.
