Dark Days, a seminal documentary on the underground homeless network in New York City is screening this Monday, February 22nd at Tribeca Cinemas. As part of the Tribeca Cinemas Presents: Doc Series -an exciting new series of innovative and thought-provoking documentary films- Dark Days sheds light on the vast underbelly of the city and the thriving community of people living inside. Director Marc Singer, who himself lived underground for two years in order to capture the vivid snapshots and footage used for the documentary, will be in attendance Monday night. You’ll be able to grab a cocktail at the Tribeca Cinemas bar before and after the film and mingle with other doc lovers and like-minded people. With a soundtrack put together by DJ Shadow, Dark Days is sure to please your curiosity of the underground as well as your ears.
This film is the winner of three Sundance awards, the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary and an LA Film Critics Award for Best Documentary. After reading a synopsis and interview with director Marc Singer, it seems like this documentary has the potential to blow anyone away; stories of people living underneath the city for years, surviving and thriving, seem truly unbelievable and moreover, the entire (completely inexperienced) film crew consisted of the very people he set out to document, using borrowed equipment on loan or credit. If the reviews on IMDB are any indication, Dark Days is a must-see for anyone hoping to gain insight (or in NEED of some insight) into the lives of New York City’s homeless community.
