Quest - award winning documentary with speakers
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.
The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and a reception.
Presented by the Newmark J-School at CUNY, and Co-Presented by Third World Newsreel, The Documentary Forum at CCNY, the Black Documentary Collective, Black Public Media.
