Spurred by the spectacle of a circus tent that goes up outside his Oakland apartment, a disabled filmmaker launches into a meditative journey exploring the history of freakdom, vision, and (in)visibility.  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.
