Almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, now one local director hopes her new feature film will spread a message of hope and faith.
Dozens piled into the Guild Theater Sunday to watch a screening of Never Alone. The feature film focuses on a young Christian woman played by Tressa Ohler who is dying of the disease.
Nancy Myers, the film’s director, is a cancer survivor herself and Christian film maker.
She believes the film will help those impacted by cancer to find a new hope in knowing Christ.
“We wanted to work our way through the emotions, frustrations, the ‘why God’ questions, the anger,” said Myers. “All of the mood changes and mood swings and then bring them back out though that darkness into the light to realize as the theme in this movie is there is a better place to go to.”
Sandra Dee, an actress in the film also had thoughtful words about the film. “I am very sentimental to the movie because it is about cancer and really seeing someone through the process and I meant through the process. It was one of my better roles. I really loved the opportunity to do this type of role.”
The screening was hosted by actors Sandra Dee and Rick Richardson.
Never Alone has been recognized internationally, winning awards like the World Fest Remi. Myers and executive producer Desiree DeAnda shot the film in the greater Sacramento area using mostly local actors.
