An intimate and patient portrait of a North Philadelphia family […] I’ve rarely seen a movie about citizenship as quietly eloquent as “Quest.” —New York Times
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.
Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the FREE, Friday evening film screenings begin at 7:45 pm with ‘doors’ opening at 7:00 pm.
Come early to claim a good spot, enjoy a frosty Fort Point Beer Company (all proceeds support outdoor cinema at PROXY!) and delicious fare from MoBowl Food Truck.
