On the heels of her Emmy nomination for “BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez,” documentary professor Sabrina Schmidt Gordon’s latest film, “QUEST: A Portrait of an American Family,” notched three Cinema Eye Honors nominations and two Independent Spirit Award nominations, including Best Documentary.

In addition, Gordon spoke about her approach to storytelling in an interview with Vogue. “I wanted to tell a story about a black family with more nuance that did not define people strictly by their circumstances but amplified their humanity and complexity,” she said.
