Dark Days Screening + Director Q&A Saturday 25 Jan

Marc Singer, director of the cult classic doc DARK DAYS, is in London for Q&As this weekend, including Hackney Picturehouse at 5pm on Saturday. For years, a homeless community took root in a train tunnel beneath New York City, braving dangerous conditions and perpetual night. Dark Days explores this surprisingly domestic subterranean world, unearthing a way of life unimaginable to those above.Filmed in striking black and white with a crew comprised of the tunnel’s inhabitants and scored by legendary turntablist DJ Shadow (Endtroducing…), Dark Days remains a soulful and enduring document of life on the fringe. DARK DAYS premiered at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival where it went on to win the Audience, Cinematography and Freedom Of Expression Awards in the Documentary Category (it remains the only documentary film ever to win three awards at the festival).
