Alone Yet Not Alone – Feature Film
Alone, Yet Not Alone is set in 1755 when the English colonies are being ravaged by the atrocities of war. Opposing European powers have clashed over the fertile Ohio valley, and entire families are devastated by the ensuing violence. Hostile native tribes are raiding the vulnerable frontier farms, and two young sisters are among those taken captive. While hoping for rescue and return to their home, they are comforted with the words of a family hymn: Alone Yet Not Alone. But when the sisters are suddenly and cruelly separated, their tender faith is brought to a stretching point. Forcibly immersed into a primitive foreign culture, the older sister, Barbara, clings to her beliefs. Yet now a deeper fate threatens, and she makes a difficult decision: to risk her life in an attempt to escape. Pursued by a relentless and cunning warrior, Barbara and her three fellow captives must cross over two hundred miles of raw wilderness in their effort to reach friendly territory.
SuttleFilm served as DP and crew in late 2010 on the film Alone, Yet Not Alone. The film consisted in over 9 weeks of production in various locations throughout Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee, and was released in 2014. “I was able to see the final cut of the film a while back and overall I am pretty happy with the photography my crew and I were able to accomplish under less than ideal conditions” James Suttles.
SuttleFilm is proud to have worked on a film that was nominated for an Academy Award. Although short lived, Alone, Yet Not Alone was nominated under Best Original Song for the song, “Alone Yet Not Alone”. The Academy rescinded the nomination in a controversial movement but SuttleFilm was proud to have their work shown in every major entertainment magazine at the time.
