Rekindling the Intellectual, Spiritual, Creative legacy of Christians in Culture

trade_posterbig Guest Host Craig Detweiler interviews Roslilyn Heller, the producer of "Trade" at the Windrider Forum at Sundance film festival. (The interview is followed by audience questions and answers.) "Trade," due for theatrical release on April 14, 2007, was inspired by a shocking true story, Trade is a gritty and undeniably disturbing film set in a sinister world where young, virginal children are kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. Adriana (Paulina Gaitan), a 13-year-old girl from Mexico City, is abducted by a Russian gang, one link in a global network that earns millions trafficking in human cargo. Adriana's brother, Jorge (Cesar Ramos), sets out on a desperate mission to save her. Traversing perilous terrain between Mexico and the United States, Jorge meets Ray (Kevin Kline), a Texas cop who's on his own mission to find a loved one lost to the sex trade. This mismatched duo form an unlikely bond as they track Adrianna's kidnappers from the slums of Mexico City across the treacherous Rio Grande border to a secret Internet sex-slave auction, culminating in a showdown in the suburbs of New Jersey. Will Jorge and Ray find Adrianna before she is sold and vanishes forever? From a screenplay by Oscar-nominee Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries), Trade features standout performances by Kline and Ramos. Filmmaker Marco Kreuzpaintner, one of Germany's leading young directors, makes a most-welcome, decidedly impressive American feature debut.David Courier
