Synopsis: Born out of Director Sharon Lewis' 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 LGBTQ2S+ 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 LGBTQ2S+ community of colour.

Covid-19 Protocols

On March 21st the Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto lifted mask mandates in public settings. The state of emergency was also lifted, along with all remaining mandates (i.e. capacity limits, social distancing). After considering the city's changes, CaribbeanTales International Film Festival has made the decision to remove the mask mandate.

Effective during festival dates (September 7-23), visitors, staff and audiences coming to CaribbeanTales International Film Festival will no longer be required to wear a mask. Masks are therefore recommended but not mandatory.

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us.
