‘Mysterious Ways’ Celebrates its World Premiere

Mysterious Ways, a new feature film edited by Peter Roberts (DEGANZ), is celebrating its world premiere in August!

It will make its festival debut at the Chichester International Film Festival in the UK as part of the Window on the World collection. Established in 1992, the festival brings cinema, both new and archival, to the south coast of England. Mysterious Ways is also celebrating its premiere here in Aotearoa with a charity screening with Rainbow Auckland where all ticket sale proceeds will be donated to the Burnett Foundation.

The film follows Vicar Peter Simmons as he grapples with the backlash and media circus surrounding his engagement to his Samoan boyfriend, Jason. Unpacking taboos of homosexuality within the Anglican church and Samoan culture, the film offers a look into a side of the LGBTQIA+ community rarely seen on screen.

Congratulations to Peter and the rest of the Mysterious Ways team!
