FLASHBACK FRIDAY WITH KWFF: 2017 KWFF CRITICS AWARD WINNER

With a special video from Sabrina Gordon, producer, and an introduction from Michael Tuckman, Programmer, KWFF.

I was asked this week to recall the most impactful film we've ever programmed at KWFF, which is basically like being asked to pick your favorite child . . . if you have litters the size of a lemming. Impactful is pretty much the main criteria for films to be programmed at KWFF. But given the events of the last two weeks, the film I can't get off my mind is QUEST, a documentary spanning 8 years—from Obama's election to Trump's inauguration—following the daily struggles and successes of the Raineys, an African-American family in North Philadelphia.

This week, we were honored to have the film's producer, Sabrina Gordon, share her thoughts on the film and the resonance it has today.
