Traffic is a crime drama set in Mexico directed by Steven Soderbergh. It explores the illegal drug trade from a number of perspectives: a user, an enforcer, a politician, and a trafficker. This story points at America’s war on drugs told through four separate stories that are connected in one way or another. A conservative judge who has just been appointed as the U.S. drug czar learns that his teenage honor student daughter is a drug addict.

In parallel, beautiful trophy wife struggles to save her wealthy husband’s drug business, while two DEA agents protect a witness with inside knowledge of the spouse’s business. A slightly corrupt, yet dedicated cop struggles with his conscience when he learns that his new boss may not be the anti-drug official he made himself out to be. Part of American Center’s Anti-Corruption Film Festival.

In English, with English subtitles, 148 mins.
