Dark Days (documentary / music by DJ Shadow)
Title...................: Dark Days
Director................: Marc Singer
Country.................: USA [2000]
Starring................: Documentary / the director
Music...................: DJ Shadow

1000.13 MiB total with extras and the making of.

Quote:Novice filmmaker Marc Singer lived in the bowels of a midtown Manhattan railway station for two years to shoot this harrowing account of the day-to-day existence of the homeless. Shot in noirish black and white, Singer shows how society's discarded and disenfranchised fashion a community of sorts in the sunless labyrinth of the station's transit tunnels. Though told without narration, a dozen or so individual stories emerge. Dee (the sole woman depicted in the film) lost all her children in a house fire while she was high on crack; Ralph remains inconsolable after his five-year old's rape and mutilation during a stint in prison. In the final reel, Amtrak sends in armed police to clean out the tunnels, citing health concerns. However, the subterranean tenets happen upon a stroke of luck, as an NYC social worker discovers a cache of previously unclaimed public housing. Featuring a sparse soundtrack by DJ Shadow, Dark Days won the Grand Jury prize for cinematography, the Freedom of Expression award, and an audience award at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival.

i thought it was a very well done documentary, great music, cinematography.

If Thine I that I spy with my own little I Doeth Offend thee ; Pluck It out.
