Oscilloscope Acquires Global Rights to Sundance Winner 'Dark Days'
Marc Singer's doc on homeless people living in NYC's underground train tunnels will hit theaters this summer.
Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired worldwide rights to Marc Singer's Dark Days, a look at the homeless population living in the underground train tunnels of New York City in the 1990s. The film originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in 2000, where it won the audience, cinematography and Freedom of Expression awards in the documentary category.
The distribution company is planning to re-release the film theatrically, followed by DVD and digital platforms, this summer and will also offer it for educational and non-theatrical screenings.
"Oscilloscope was my first choice to re-distribute Dark Days. If they had refused, my next move was to take the film out of circulation while I bombarded them with phone calls everyday for months on end until they gave in," Singer said.
