Join us in honoring International Persons with Disabilities Day with the UMBC screening of "I Didn't See You There",  a thought-provoking movie, followed by discussion with peers and colleagues.  About the film: I Didn't See You There

As a visibly disabled person, filmmaker Reid Davenport sets out to make a film about how he sees the world, from either his wheelchair or his two feet, without having to be seen himself. The unexpected arrival of a circus tent outside his 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. This perspective results in a documentary that is powerful and emotional, thoughtful and raw, intimate and political - and has been awarded and acclaimed at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival.

Administration 101 has accessible seating, and a range of features that enhance accessibility for audiences.  The film is captioned, and an audio-described version is available upon request. Please email accommodation requests and event inquiries to slazar@umbc.edu with "Documentary" in the subject line.
