With Wonder Director Sharon Lewis interviewed on The Dr. Vibe Show™: The Morning Vibe™

Original source: The Dr. Vibe Show™: The Morning Vibe™ – July 18, 2022

The Morning Vibe™ is a twice a week live conversation (Mondays and Fridays at 9 a.m. EST) with Dr. Vibe and Ryan Oneil Knight.

Whether they discuss important subjects between themselves or have conversations with people who you need to know about, their goal is to create a positive Morning Vibe!!

Canada’s Black-Market Releasing (BMR) has acquired the Black Queer film “With Wonder” by award-winning Black filmmaker Sharon Lewis. BMR has announced the first community screening of its event-based theatrical tour across Canada (Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton & Winnipeg) as July 9 at the Weengushk International Film Festival, celebrating National Indigenous History Month.

“With Wonder” had its formal release on June 1, 2022, on CBC Gem. June’s launch coincides with International Pride Month.

“With Wonder” is a love letter to God, asking the question, can you be a Christian and Queer. Queer activists from around the world, a Queer/Transgender Tamil-Sri Lankan-American comedian in LA, rural Queer folks in Jamaica and Black, Asian and South Asian Queer Clerics in London, San Francisco, and New York search for the answer on this journey. Their stories, though sometimes strained, are all connected by Faith & Lewis’s poignant portrayal of their queerness. “With Wonder” is a perfect acquisition for Black Market Releasing.

Sharon Lewis, director and producer of “With Wonder” will be live on our show today (July 18, 2022) at 9 a.m. Eastern/6 a.m. Pacific.

“With Wonder” (2021), was born out of Sharon’s own muted struggle with not fitting into neat racial/Queer/Christian boxes. This captivating feature documentary, which won Audience Choice Award at Reelworld Film Festival 2021, is the latest in a long list of her creative work in the black, women of color, and Queer communities. Sharon’s work has been recognized with 6 Canadian Screen Award (CSA) nominations and she is the recent winner of a CSA for Best Direction of a Factual Series. Sharon continues to blaze trails in both scripted and unscripted storytelling.
