Summary:
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. Through stories simultaneously heartbreaking, hilarious, intimate, and off the cuff, tunnel dwellers reveal their reasons for taking refuge and their struggle to survive underground. This special feature includes an introduction with former New York City mayor David Dinkins and Q&A with Singer and Executive Director of the Coalition for the homeless, Mary E. Brosnahan at the Maysles Cinema.
