Dark days

| No Comments

Marc Singer directed Dark Days from within a very special community. He filmed life and time inside a rarely used train tunnel. Dystopian housing in the tunnel provided power and water which made life more sustainable than on the street. The indigenous cast also formed a crew to help with the camera, lights, and sound. Learn a way of living.


The community of people gathered inside the Riverside Park train tunnel to escape the oppressive environment of the park above. The tunnel was built in the 1930s but rarely used until Amtrak started in the 1990s. These strong citizens of New York lived by salvaging power, water and other critical resources to survive. Murals lit by ventilation ducts cover the concrete walls.
