For those of you who endure the tribute to overpriced inefficiency that is the New York subway system, this film will change your commute forever. Filmed in the bowels of the Big Apple’s underground transport system, Dark Days portrays the lives of those residents who, for various reasons, choose to live in an abandoned subway tunnel.

With a score by DJ Shadow, Marc Singer’s film is both poignant and blunt, literally casting light on a world that many of us can barely imagine as we huff and puff at the trivialities of life above ground. It’ll make you wonder what sort of community is on the other side of the tunnel wall the next time your train gets “delayed."
