Debra Granik continues her cinematic travelogue

(Starts at 8:10)

The filmmaker went into the Appalachian mountains for her 2010 movie, "Winter's Bone," and into the remote parts of the Pacific Northwest for her new feature, "Leave No Trace." Her latest is an adaptation of a book, which itself was an adaptation of a true story about a veteran and his teenage daughter living off the grid. Granik spoke with John Horn at the Sundance Film Festival when the film premiered. They discuss her approach to storytelling and how it differs from most Hollywood projects.

Are you ready for Sam Buck's country?
