I Didn't See You There is shot entirely from Davenport's physical perspective, largely from an electric wheelchair, as he navigates downtown Oakland, California, and his hometown of Bethel, Connecticut.

The unexpected arrival of a circus tent outside Reid's apartment in Oakland, CA leads him to consider the history and legacy of P.T. Barnum’s Freak Show and its lingering presence in his daily life in the form of gawking, lack of access, and other forms of ableism. The film expands on the tradition of point-of-view cinema by incorporating a disabled aesthetic generated through Davenport's own embodiment.

I Didn't See You There had its world premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival.


The film brings up many emotions, from empathy to frustration, as the most ordinary obstacles become life-changing.

Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid

An experimental movie of great beauty.
