Stevie


Montana Premiere

After a ten year absence, filmmaker Steve James (Hoop Dreams) returns to rural Pomona Illinois to document what has become of the difficult, lonely boy he had been a mentor ‘Big Brother’ to back in 1985. What James’ intimate camera uncovers, over the course of five years of filming, is a troubled, child-like young man and a family history of sadness, courage, love and mystery as rich and fearless as a first-rate naturalistic novel. This complex and deeply emotional documentary, produced in collaboration with Kartemquin Films, has rewarded and challenged audiences at theaters and festivals throughout the U.S. and internationally.
