“Devoid of any political posturing or editorial agenda, Quest is a jarring and gentle testament to the powers of family and individual kindness.”—Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter
Filmed with vérité intimacy for nearly a decade, Quest is the moving portrait of the Rainey family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, Christopher “Quest” Rainey, and his wife, Christine’a “Ma Quest” raise a family while nurturing a community of hip hop artists in their basement home music studio. It’s a safe space where all are welcome, but this creative sanctuary can’t always shield them from the strife that grips their neighborhood.
Epic in scope, Quest is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, healing, and hope. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. 2017, US, DCP, 105 minutes. Recommended for 13+.
