February Highlight:

An Intimate Portrait of an African-American Family

This New York Times Critics' Pick, filmed with verite intimacy for nearly a decade, is a 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. Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival and Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.

"An intimate and patient portrait of a North Philadelphia family [...] I've rarely seen a movie about citizenship as quietly eloquent as QUEST." - The New York Times

"QUEST may be one of the most important films about the American experience ever filmed." - POV Magazine
