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 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.
Media Fellowship House’s Film Speaks series presents moving and provocative films from our area and around the country by renowned and emerging film makers.
A Q&A with QUEST Documentary‘s filmmaker Sabrina Gordon and the Rainey family will follow the screening.
Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to all!
