Join us for Quest, a moving portrait of a North Philadelphia family who saw a pressing need in their community and were inspired to fill it. Filmed with vérité intimacy over almost a decade, this epic film that begins at the dawn of the Obama presidency follows the journey of Christopher “Quest” Rainey and his wife, Christine’a “Ma Quest” as they raise a family while nurturing a group of hip-hop artists in their home basement 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. Quest is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, healing, and hope.
