THROUGH THE NIGHT is a bewitching, beguiling cinéma vérité, fly-on-the-wall picture perfect film about the lives of the owners and customers of a grassroots New Rochelle, New York, 24-hour day care center. It’s lensed by a filmmaker who wants to flood pop culture “with beautifully complex portrayals of the lives of working-class women of color” and their families who stoically draw on “titanic strength, love, and selflessness” in the menacing face of racism and sexism and the inequality of American capitalism.
