“Quest”: A new documentary about a North Philadelphia family

Listen 32:00

Filmmaker JONATHAN OLSHEFSKI spent nearly a decade documenting the life of the Rainey family living in North Philadelphia. His new documentary, Quest, is an intimate portrait of this loving and tight-knit family who have created a safe and creative space in a tough neighborhood in a city struggling with poverty and violence. Today, we’re joined by Olshefski and CHRISTOPHER “QUEST” RAINEY, along with his daughter, PJ RAINEY to hear about how the film came to be and the message it sends.
