I Didn’t See You There is an innovative, expressionistic and deeply personal film, and the debut documentary feature by filmmaker Reid Davenport. Shot entirely from first-person perspective, with a camera affixed to the filmmaker’s electric wheelchair, Davenport immerses the viewer in his point of view, narrating his daily journeys, and the indignities of traversing the world in a wheelchair. When a looming circus tent is erected in his Oakland neighbourhood, Reid is compelled to reflect on the damaging legacy of the circus freak show and its framing of disability as spectacle.

Screening as part of Disability Futures, presented by LIFF 2022 and the University of Leeds, with funding from the Wellcome Trust. Disability Futures is also presented in partnership with injury and litigation specialist law firm Stewarts.
