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 the filmmaker’s literal physical perspective, both from his wheelchair and his two feet, I DIDN'T SEE YOU THERE is a groundbreaking work of documentary cinema by first-time feature director Reid Davenport, winner of the Sundance Director Award U.S. Documentary.
A panel discussion will follow the film on disability and being looked at without being seen.
