Join me and the producer of Quest for a viewing & Q&A!
A powerful documentary (edited by a friend of mine from high school!):

Filmed with vérité intimacy for over a decade, QUEST is the moving portrait of a family in North Philadelphia. Christopher “Quest” Rainey, along with his wife Christine’a, aka “Ma Quest,” open the door to their home music studio, which serves as a creative sanctuary from the strife that grips their neighborhood. Over the years, the family evolves as everyday life brings a mix of joy and unexpected crisis. Set against the backdrop of a country now in turmoil, QUEST is a tender depiction of an American family whose journey is a profound testament to love, healing and hope.

“Olshefski resists hopeful banality as well as easy nihilism, forging a complex tonality in which these conditions merge with countless other emotional registers—as in anyone’s actual life. In this film, humiliation walks hand-in-hand with transcendence.” – Slant
