Hot Docs Screening: “QUEST”
Join us for a free screening of the award-winning documentary "QUEST" by Jonathan Olshefski and Newmark J-School professor Sabrina Schmidt Gordon, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, and reception.
Co-Presented by Third World Newsreel, the Black Documentary Collective, Black Public Media.
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.
