Leave No Trace

For years Will and his teenage daughter, Tom, have lived off the grid, blissfully undetected by authorities in a vast nature reserve on the edge of Portland, Oregon. When a chance encounter blows their cover, they’re removed from their camp and put into the charge of social services. Struggling to adapt to their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a perilous journey back to the wilderness, where they are finally forced to confront conflicting desires—a longing for community versus a fierce need to live apart.

"[Director Debra Granik] made a film of grace and power, a story of people lost and found in America that often shows us at our noble and humble best. How rare and refreshing that is these days.” - Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair

Debra Granik is the director and co-writer of WINTER'S BONE, which was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, and won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Her first feature film, DOWN TO THE BONE, which was filmed in the Hudson Valley, won Granik the Best Feature Narrative Award at the 5th annual Woodstock Film Festival and the Best Director prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. Debra Granik returned to the Woodstock Film Festival in 2014 with her film STRAY DOGS. She was on our feature narrative jury that same year, and also participated in our Women in Film panel (with Courteney Cox, Jenna Ricker, Thelma Adams, and Leah Myerhoff).

One of today’s most intelligent and daring filmmakers, Debra Granik, who has a keen eye for discovering emerging young talent (think teenage Jennifer Lawrence in WINTER’S BONE) often delves deep into the story and characters that she creates, bringing out unique beauty and kindness in the most unlikely people and places. I first saw LEAVE NO TRACE as it world premiered at Sundance in January 2018 and knew right there and then that I would have to bring the film and its filmmaker to Woodstock."
-Woodstock Film Festival Executive Director Meira Blaustein
