Post-film Skype Q&A with director Jonathan Olshefski
A New York Times “Critic’s Pick!” by A.O. Scott and called “One of the Year’s Best Docs!” by Alan Scherstuhl in the Village Voice, QUEST is a beautiful and moving portrait of a family in North Philadelphia that was filmed with vérité intimacy for close to a decade. 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, the film is a tender depiction of an American family whose journey is a profound testament to love, healing and hope. Winner of multiple Grand Jury Prizes for Best Documentary (including Full Frame, River Run and Dallas).
No table reservations can be made for this event.
