Description

2020 VIEWFINDERS SPECIAL JURY RECOGNITION FOR ETHICS OF CARE

Night-shift workers and single moms in New Rochelle, NY have angels in their midst: Nunu and husband Patrick run a 24-hour childcare center for parents with no other options. The home-based center provides children with food, fun, and lots of love, but at what cost to the providers? Director Loira Limbal takes us inside Dee’s Tots Daycare for an intimate and compelling look at two unsung heroes in selfless service to their community.  

This film has English language closed captioning available.  For more information about closed captions and accessibility at DOC NYC, please click here.
