Lecture, Film Screenings



I Didn't See You There is the latest in our Freedom Film Series, in partnership with LADD, Inc. Spurred by the spectacle of a circus tent that goes up outside his Oakland apartment, a disable filmmaker launches into an unflinching meditation on spectacle, (in)visibility and the corrosive legacy of the freak show. This groundbreaking work from first time director Reid Davenport is shot entirely from the filmmaker's literal, physical perspective, both from his wheelchair and his two feet.

Following the screening, stay for a discussion with ability, accessibility and representation with:

  • Dr. Kara Ayers, Associate Director, Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati's Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities; and Associate Professor, University of Cincinnati Department of Pediatrics
  • Jason Harris, Director of Strategic Operations, LADD, Inc.; and a programmer for the Over-the-Rhine International Film Festival

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased for either in-person or virtual viewing.
