Leave No Trace – Fundraiser Screening
Winter’s Bone director Debra Granik returns with this powerful, haunting film about a 13-year-old girl living off the grid with her war vet father.
Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie gives an incredible breakthrough performance as Tom, a teenager who has been living in the Oregon woods with her troubled father Will (Ben Foster), from an early age. Camped in the forest, they are peaceful, lo-tech survivalists, perfectly attuned to each other and the natural world. When a chance encounter blows their cover and social services intervene, the pair escape on a perilous journey back to the wilderness, where they are finally forced to confront their conflicting desires and re-evaluate their relationship…
A film of pure grace and power, this is a masterful portrait of people and communities living off the grid – indeed, some critics have said this is the film Captain Fantastic “should have been”.
Proceeds go to help fund our free film festival in September.
