The screening will be followed by an on-stage conversation with directors Petter Ringbom and Marquise Stillwell and producer Ruchi Mital.

In rural Georgia, the self-taught African-American artist Nellie Mae Rowe created a breathtaking body of work across a plethora of mediums, reflecting the broader concerns of American political and social movements across most of the 20th century in which she lived. Opendox directors Petter Ringbom and Marquise Stillwell craft a bountiful expression of Rowe’s world in THIS WORLD IS NOT MY OWN, matching their subject’s limitless visions with an array of storytelling techniques. The words Rowe left behind are brought to vivid life by three-time Emmy winner Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black, Mrs. America).
