For ‘Leave No Trace,’ director Debra Granik goes into the woods

Hosted by

Director Debra Granik gave Jennifer Lawrence her breakout role in her 2010 movie ‘Winter’s Bone.’ Lawrence skyrocketed to the highest levels of Hollywood stardom, while Granik has stuck to her indie roots, working with tiny budgets and lesser-known actors. For her new film, ‘Leave No Trace,’ Granik’s stars had to learn wilderness survival techniques as they prepared to play a father and daughter who make their home in the woods. Granik tells us what she’s been up to in the eight years since ‘Winter’s Bone,’ and explains how she imported the young actress playing the daughter in her newest film from New Zealand.
