Filmed for nearly a decade Jonathan Olshefski’s masterpiece portrays the lives of the Quest family against the backdrop of North Philadelphia. A remarkable example of cinéma vérité with over 400 hours of footage walking into the edit, it’s distilled down into an engaging, revealing and extremely well-paced film. Addressing issues of gun violence, music and the power of the community, kudos to Olshefski and his editor Lindsay Utz.
