Reid Davenport: I Didn’t See You There
Reid Davenport’s Creative Capital Project, I Didn’t See You There, makes its national broadcast premiere on POV January 9, and will be available to stream at pbs.org, and the PBS Video app until Feb. 8, 2023.
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.
