PBS Premiere—I DIDN’T SEE YOU THERE
PBS BROADCAST―The documentary film I DIDN’T SEE YOU THERE by Director Reid Davenport premieres on PBS POV Monday, January 9.
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.

I DIDN’T SEE YOU THERE was supported by California Humanities through the California Documentary Project grant.
