Furthering their reputation as the go-to creative audio post house for cutting edge indie documentaries, HOBO lent to its considerable sonic skills to the acclaimed documentary “Quest,” which following a successful film festival run that included winning a 2018 Independent Spirit Award and being named a 2017 official section at Sundance, will have its broadcast premiere on PBS starting June 18.

Part of PBS’ POV series, “Quest,” will air throughout June, and will also have select theatrical screenings around the U.S. A complete list of screening can be found here.  

Directed by Jonathan Olshefski who filmed with vérité intimacy for almost a decade, “QUEST” is the moving portrait of an American family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, parents Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" Rainey raise their family while navigating the poverty and strife that grips their neighborhood. Amid the chaos, they nurture a community of artists in their basement home music studio, but even this creative sanctuary can't always keep them safe. Epic in scope, QUEST is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, commitment, healing and hope.

For the HOBO team, led by Senior Audio Engineer Chris Stangroom, and featuring the skills of Stephen Davies, Diego Jimenez, Julian Angel, Oscar Convers and Jesse Peterson, sound proved to be a big part of the cinematic experience for QUEST.
