As I’d mentioned in a recent post, Oscilloscope Laboratories has put together a great re-release DVD of Marc Singer’s amazing film Dark Days and it’s hitting stores today! Thanks to the kind folks at Oscilloscope, we’re giving away a copy of this great film here at The Documentary Blog! Here’s the synopsis:
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.
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.
If you’d like to enter for a chance to win your own copy of Dark Days, simply send me an email here with ‘DARK DAYS’ in the subject line and be sure to include your full name and mailing address. I will announce the winner sometime next week. Good luck!
Dark Days is now available on DVD.
