“Traffik” director Deon Taylor and star Laz Alonzo interview with Movies and Shakers


They say people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. But in this thriller, a glass house becomes a glass prison where two couples, off to have a romantic weekend in Lake Tahoe, meet up with a motorcycle gang led by a guy with a different agenda.

Laz Alonso (Avatar, Detroit) told us in our interview that he didn’t know much about sex trafficking before making this movie, but he does now. Alonzo, said he learned a lot about it, and about filmmaking, working with Writer/Director Deon Taylor. Taylor said he picked up on press clippings about sex trafficking and found a woman who was in the trade and got out of it. She became his consultant on set.
