This World is Not My Own

Feature Doc / In Development

Together with Atlanta’s Judith Alexander Foundation, Opendox is producing a feature documentary about the incredible artist, Nellie Mae Rowe. After making art in obscurity, Nellie Mae Rowe became an overnight sensation at the tender age of 78. The film, titled “This World is Not My Own,” tells the story of the artist’s life in the south from 1900 to 1982, a tumultuous and transformative time in our nation’s history.

 Nellie Mae Rowe transformed her home in Vinings, Georgia into an ever-changing art work that she dubbed her “playhouse.”
