Stevie G

2014, 60 minutes

One brother's portrait of another

Steve Gavin Clint J Goldhill (aka Stevie 'G' or Stevie 'Fucking G' as he friends would call him) grew up in a south London suburb. Stevie is the third born of a family that expands across three homes. By the age of 14 he was put into care, his parents unable to deal with his fiery, rebellious nature and constant truanting at school. By 15 Stevie was sentenced to 6 months imprisonment at London's notorious Feltham Detention Centre for young offenders. A bad start to young man's future. Since then Stevie has been convicted for numerous offences, spent a total of 5 years in prison and had a life of crime, sex and violence. Director, Umut Gunduz, is Stevie's brother. During the winter months of 2010, whilst Stevie served his last prison sentence to date, the two made contact through written letters. It wasn't long before they both began to talk of their misguided choices and their childhoods, expressing brutal honesty about their feelings to certain situations and telling their two separate viewpoints of the same moments in time. It was then that Umut suggested the making of a film about Stevie. Having never really grown up together, Umut attempts to discover his brother through the medium of film. As he collects the footage, he learns more and more about Stevie's life choices, his attitudes and ideals, his hopes and his fears and begins to piece the young man together for himself...
