Luton Film Factory presents and in Association with the Mary Seacole Housing Association

Dark Days reveals the extraordinary lives of homeless people who live below ground in the New York railway tunnels. They live in virtual darkness and built themselves one-room shacks, they have pets, cook, chat, argue, give each other haircuts. A bucket is their toilet. Leaky overhead pipes are a source of water for showers.

Marc Singer, a young Englishman, lived with them and together they made this award winning documentary which has been called the 'proletarian antithesis of Woody Allen’s Manhattan'.

Directed by and starring Marc Singer.
