One night screening of multi-award winning doc 'Dark Days' about a community of homeless people in NYC, introduced by NYC's 106th Mayor David Dinkins and followed by Q&A with director Singer and Mary Brosnahan, Executive Director of the Coalition for the Homeless.
Dir. Marc Singer, 2000, 94 min.
Dark Days is the multi-award winning documentary from Marc Singer about a community of homeless people illegally living in the "Freedom" tunnel beneath Manhattan, unofficially named for the graffiti artist Chris "Freedom" Pape and his series of pieces that famously adorn the endless tunnel. The film depicts a way of life that is unimaginable to most of those who walk the streets above. In the pitch black of the tunnel, rats swarm through piles of garbage as high-speed trains leaving Penn Station tear through the darkness. Dark Days is an eye-opening work that sheds a spotlight on a world generally shrouded in darkness and now provides a look back at a literal underground community at the turn of 20th century New York City.
Introduced by New York City's 106th mayor and Coalition for the Homeless board member David Dinkins. After the screening, Q&A with director Singer and Mary Brosnahan, Executive Director of the Coalition for the Homeless.
A portion of the proceeds from this screening will go to the Coalition for the Homeless.
