Special Guest Debra Granik Attending

From director Debra Granik, whose film Winter’s Bone (’10) earned four Oscar® nominations, Leave No Trace brings to life the story of a young girl, Tom (newcomer Thomasin Mckenzie) and her war-vet father, Will (Ben Foster). The two live off the grid, led by Will’s PTSD, which has rendered him incapable of rejoining civilian life. Instead they spend their days in the wilderness, practicing survivalist skills and keeping away from the crowds.

While a loving and intelligent daughter, Tom has become increasingly aware of the life she is missing out on. In contrast, Will operates in a state of near panic, unable to break from a condition that is out of his control. Nonetheless, the foundation of the relationship between father and daughter is one of unconditional love, and Leave No Trace finds its strength within the familial ties that refuse to break.
