Quest Screening Room Thu, Jul 13, 7:30PM Sun, Jul 16, 2PM See more at Filmed over a decade with the intimacy of cinema verite, Quest is an epic portrait of a family in north Philadelphia. Christopher "Quest" Rainey, along with his wife Christine'a, aka "Ma Quest," open the door to their home music studio, which serves as a creative sanctuary from the strife that grips their neighborhood. Over the years, the family evolves as everyday life brings a mix of joy and unexpected crisis. Set against the backdrop (roughly mirroring the Obama presidency) of a country now in turmoil, Quest is an overwhelming testament to love, healing, and hope and one of the most important documentaries of the year. (2017, 105 min, digital) Part of: Global Sounds on Screen Jul 6 - Aug 13, 2017 Screening Room Not your typical concert movie series, this is a globe-trotting survey of films on music, struggle, joy, and dissent. From the birth of the blues in West Africa to unexpected techno in Iran, pop idols in Japan, and a pioneering woman in synthesizers, these films offer a broad depiction of music on-screen.
