BERKELEY SCREENING: I DIDN’T SEE YOU THERE

April 30 @ 3:00 pm5:00 pm

$16 – $18

65TH SFFILM FESTIVAL: I DIDN’T SEE YOU THERE–Oakland resident, filmmaker, and disability activist Reid Davenport reflects on matters of visibility, family, and the freak show in his latest personal film, winner of Sundance’s Directing Award for US Documentary. Visits to his family in Connecticut prompt memories of growing up before moving west to be an artist. A circus tent erected near his apartment elicits thoughts about America’s fascination with freak shows and how his cerebral palsy affects the perceptions of those around him. As he reveals his observations in voiceover, Davenport’s movements are depicted from the vantage point of his wheelchair, so the frustrations caused by people blocking sidewalks and access ramps or bus drivers issuing unachievable demands are made abundantly clear. Director Reid Davenport is expected to attend. I DIDN’T SEE YOU THERE Friday, April 29 at 6 pm Victoria Theatre 2961 16th Street, San Francisco Saturday, April 30 at 3 pm Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive 2155 Center St, Berkeley, CA 94720 Click here for tickets and more information. This project is supported by a California Documentary Project grant.
