“Quest”: This lovely, uplifting drama is exactly what we need now; a story honoring compassionate people. It’s inspired by the generous actions of Berkeley High School coach and teacher Tim Moellering who helped redirect the life of Santiago Rizzo. Now Rizzo pays tribute to the late Moellering and others who reach out to help others in a time of need. Filmed in the East Bay and starring Gregory Kasyan as “Mills,” this fictionalized account follows a young graffiti tagger’s process to become liberated from an abusive environment. Screenings: 3:45 p.m. Oct. 14, Larkspur; 2:15 p.m. Oct. 15, the Rafael.
