"A living, breathing, stunning documentary study of an African-American family in North Philadelphia weathering a tumultuous decade." - Guy Lodge, Variety
Shot over a decade, this tender and moving film is a portrait of a family living in North Philadelphia.
Set against the backdrop of a country now in turmoil and a neighbourhood plagued by inequality and neglect, Quest follows Christopher “Quest” Rainey and his wife Christine’a as they raise their children and nurture the creative sanctuary offered by their home music studio.
Filmmaker Jonathan Olshefski’s debut feature is not only is a profound testament to love, healing and hope but also a stunning illumination of race, class and community.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADVERTS PLAYED BEFORE FILMS IN THE BERTHA DOCHOUSE SCREEN. ALL FEATURES WILL START PROMPTLY FOLLOWING A SELECTION OF TRAILERS.
DOCHOUSE'S JOSHUA HUGHES SAYS...
Moving, intimate and honest, Jonathan Olshefski’s Quest is a must see this week. Shot over a period of 10 years with the Rainey family, the film is a window into an America we don’t hear about in the news. Politics is just background noise here. But through difficult times where most people would be pushed to breaking point the Rainey’s display of resilience, strength and above all, love for each other is inspiring.
