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.
"Critic's Pick. Class and race intersect meaningfully in the wonderful Quest. Shows a kinship with 'Hoop Dreams' and 'Boyhood' in the way it makes subtle and powerful use of the passage of time. The movie s quiet eloquence invites you to reflect on what it means to belong to a family and a place, and also on the nature of citizenship at a time of political polarization." --The New York Times
"There are biographical documentaries, fortunate to the point of being blessed, that start as fly-on-the-wall journalism and luck into better-than-fiction narrative twists. The remarkable Quest is one of them." --Philadelphia Inquirer
"Quest is the type of independent film about American life that should be common but is rare in actuality. Christopher, Christine'a, and P.J. are beautiful to watch together, and there's hope in witnessing them persevere." --Scott Tobias, National Public Radio
