Debra Granik: 'There aren't many women who love making films about blood and gore'

The director who discovered Jennifer Lawrence discusses her latest film "Leave No Trace" as it's released in France. Adapted from the book "My Abandonment" by Peter Rock, the film centres on a father and daughter who live off the land — away from society — in a national park in the United States.

Eve Jackson speaks to Debra Granik about why characters on the fringes of society interest her, Jennifer Lawrence’s success and the challenges facing female filmmakers in an industry where consumers demand violence, blood and gore.
