Join us for a screening of Reid Davenport's Sundance award-winning feature film, I Didn't See You There. 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 in the form of gawking, lack of access, and other forms of ableism. Hosted at SLCC's Salt Lake City Campus screening room.               *NOTE: Masks are required at this event.
