The Hottest Docs: I Didn't See You There

Winner - Directing Award - U.S. Documentary, Sundance Film Festival, 2022

Spurred by the spectacle of a circus tent that goes up outside his Oakland apartment, a disabled filmmaker launches into an unflinching meditation on spectacle, (in)visibility and the corrosive legacy of the Freak Show. Shot entirely from director Reid Davenport's physical perspective—mounted to his wheelchair or handheld—the film serves as an unequivocal rebuke to the norm of disabled people being seen and not heard. I Didn't See You There expands on the tradition of point-of-view cinema by incorporating a disabled aesthetic generated through Davenport's own embodiment.

Pre-recorded Q&A with director Reid Davenport following the screening.
