Quest Film Screening Event

Wed, July 11, 2018 7:00 P.M.
Social Science and History Department at Parkway Central Library

This intimate, critically acclaimed documentary captures eight years in the life of an African-American family living in North Philadelphia.

 Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" raise a family while nurturing a community of hip hop artists in their basement 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.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A and a chance to meet principals of the film including members of the Rainey family and the filmmakers, Sabrina S. Gordon & Jonathan Olshefski .

MONTGOMERY AUDITORIUM.  Admission will be FREE & TICKETS are NOT REQUIRED.  Seating will be first come, first served.  Overflow seating will be in the Skyline Room where event will be simulcast.
