What movie was that...?

Dark Days

directed by Marc Singer

For the true story of underground dwellers (minus the killings and mutantry), see Marc Singer’s stunning doc Dark Days. Singer takes a camera beneath the streets of New York City to document a close-knit, subterranean neighborhood of the city’s homeless. Filmed in stark black and white and featuring some truly remarkable people, Singer’s doc shines a light on the value of human relationships and the bonds forged in the darkest of times. It is a testament to the endurance of people and the strength of family. The making of Dark Days is just as astonishing as the film itself, including Singer’s quest to convince DJ Shadow to contribute music for his doc. Well worth it.
