Dark Days Poster

  Marc Singer's "Dark Days" is a feature-length documentary about a community of homeless people living in a train tunnel beneath Manhattan. The film depicts a way of life that is unimaginable to most of those who walk the streets above. In the pitch blackness of the tunnel, rats swarm through piles of garbage and high-speed trains out of Penn station tear through the darkness.
