The New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF) and Script to Screen are thrilled to present two very special TALKS: the first with celebrated director Debra Granik (WINTER’S BONE), and the second with Debra Granik and New Zealand actor Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie.
LEAVE NO TRACE, Granik’s 4th feature, premiered at Sundance 2018 and screened at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight. It stars Ben Foster and Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie.
Granik’s earlier feature WINTER’S BONE was nominated for four Oscars including Best Picture. LEAVE NO TRACE, one of the best reviewed independent films of the year, is predicted by IndieWire to bring Granik her second Oscar nomination for best screenplay with co-writer and producer Anne Rosellini.
Join us after each NZIFF screening of this highly anticipated film, to hear firsthand from Debra Granik about the challenges and intrigues of bringing LEAVE NO TRACE to the screen. New Zealand actress Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, credited with a remarkable lead performance, will be part of the Saturday evening TALK.
Debra Granik will also be doing Q&A sessions in Wellington on July 29 and July 30 at the Embassy Theatre.
