With Wonder screening with Sharon Lewis
When and Where
In celebration of Pride Month, Sharon Lewis presents her award-winning film, With Wonder — a subjective documentary that tries to answer the question: can you be Christian and Queer? This special Canadian Film Forum screening is presented by Innis College and the Cinema Studies Institute.
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.
