About the FILM: NGIYAPHILA Spirituality & Sexuality
The film follows Reverend Phumzile Mabizela on a passionate journey, engaging with religious leaders and church congregations on issues of spirituality and sexuality. As a strong willed woman, who is openly living with HIV, she promotes positive living and inclusion. Reverend Mabizela talks about spirituality and sexuality in an honest and humorous way, celebrating both as gifts from God. Through Contextual Bible Studies she challenges church leaders to re-examine their own understandings and beliefs. For her, Centres of Worship need to be places of healing, which embrace diversity and challenge discrimination, especially against people living with HIV and the LGBTI community.
