Dark Days (2000, 94 min., Dir Marc Singer)

Winner of 3 awards at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival

From The Guardian: “Singer’s subject is the community of lost souls living in the underground tunnels beneath Penn Station, in New York. They have erected plasterboard partitions, and ingeniously managed to reroute electricity to their homemade shacks, though there is no running water. They can be very houseproud. It is safer down in their subterranean shantytown than being homeless on ground level, but for me a second viewing disclosed even more clearly the un-bohemian horror of actually existing down there, having almost literally fallen through the cracks. In the darkness, their faces loom like lost souls in purgatory: in daylight, they look quite different and more human.”
