2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #38. Hannah Gross (Christmas, Again)

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #38. Hannah Gross (Christmas, Again)Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries” …
Hannah Gross: Jean Rhys.  Sharon Lockhart. The Bridge (Bron, Broen) / The Fall / *re*discovering The X-Files

Lavallee: Could you describe the character of Lydia, and the sort of oscillating rapport she built with Noel?
Gross: I think Lydia also considers herself to be a bit of an outsider, that’s why she gravitates towards Noel. And Noel is able to recognize that in her as well.

Lavallee: Your filmography so far includes work with the likes of Matthew Porterfield, Nathan Silver, and Dustin Guy Defa. I’m curious to know how you go about your film choices?
Gross: More luck than anything. Consider myself very lucky to have met and then been able to work with, I think, some of the most interesting filmmakers in coming out of American independent film.
