I Didn't See You There

  • Feature Film
  • 2023
  • 90 Mins

When a circus tent goes up outside his Oakland apartment, a disabled filmmaker launches into a meditative journey exploring the history of freakdom, vision, and (in)visibility. Shot from the director's physical perspective — mounted to his wheelchair or handheld —I Didn't See You There serves as a clear rebuke to the norm of disabled people being seen and not heard. Winner, 2022 Sundance, U.S. Documentary Director and Grand Jury Prize nominee.

Critical Acclaim

A sometimes funny and sometimes furious window into the casual inconveniences and less casual indignities [Davenport] runs into in a world not built for him... It's a must-see.
