'Quest' Follows A North Philly Family For 8 Years

Filmmaker Jonathan Olshefski spent nearly 10 years filming Christopher Rainey and his family, who run a recording studio in a working-class African-American neighborhood of North Philadelphia. During the course of the film we see the Raineys get married, raise their daughter, and try to recover from a traumatic turn of events when she is hit by a stray bullet. Olshefski and Christopher "Quest" Rainey talk about the film. Also we remember war photographer David Douglas Duncan and Elvis Presley's drummer D.J. Fontana.
