With Wonder

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 film 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.

Sharon Lewis

Sharon Lewis’ focus in her directing career is to tell entertaining stories with a unique cinematic flavour and heavy-hitting performance. She has been nominated for 8 Canadian Screen Awards and won a CSA for Best Direction of a Factual Series. Sharon is also know for her feature films ‘Brown Girl Begins’, a post-apocalyptic Afro-futurist sci-fi tale, and ‘Disruptor Conductor’, her documentary debut, about the first openly gay black Canadian orchestral conductor. Both films have screened at trinidad+tobago film festival and toured the world festival scene garnering awards and critical acclaim. Although Sharon was born in Toronto, Canada and trained and lived in Los Angeles, she still has ties to her Jamaican/ Trinidadian roots and works hard at giving voice to black people and people of colour in all the projects she has the privilege of directing and producing.
