Traffik is an upcoming American thriller film directed and written by Deon Taylor. The film stars Paula Patton and Omar Epps. It is scheduled for a wide release on 20 April 2018 by Summit Entertainment.
In one haunting moment from Liongate’s upcoming thriller “Traffik,” a young woman is drugged and loaded into a waiting truck by sex traffickers after having spent much of the night running for her life. Nina Simone’s stirring “Strange Fruit” punctuates the scene, a touch that filmmaker Deon Taylor calls a “spiritual moment” intended to draw a parallel between trafficking and that other institution that commodifies people held against their will.
