A FILM BY SHARON LEWIS
"With Wonder is truth, love, tears, pain, catharsis, hope, and healing. It is discovering that God's loving grace and presence never leaves God's children."
Born out of Director Sharon Lewis’s own muted struggle with not fitting into neat racial/Queer/Christian boxes, With Wonder takes an intimate look at the journey of members of the Queer, Christian community of colour and their attempts to answer the question: Can you be both Christian and Queer? In this feature length documentary, we hear and see diverse members of the LGBTQI+ community, including high profile queer activists and Queer clerics, in places like Jamaica, New York, London, and Los Angeles. They each have their own unique ways of amplifying their voices and finding their way back to spiritual health, despite the shaming tactics of some Christian institutions. With Wonder is a love letter to God from the LGBTQI+ community of colour.
"Maybe this is the way
that God made me."
"This film will find your heart and hold it gently. Lewis’ incredibly sincere documentary delves deep into the lives of people who have found the other side of their trauma, in order to live in their power as who they are.”
