"Traffic" Ten Years Later

Feature films love Cincinnati's old world architecture, particularly its preserved turn-of-the-century neighborhoods like Over-the-Rhine which has hosted more than a dozen film projects over the past 25 years. Soapbox and Seven/Seventy-Nine take a present-day look at locations from one of those feature films, the award winning drama "Traffic," ten years after the production was partially shot in Over-the-Rhine, Downtown, and Hyde Park. We found that while some things have stayed the same, many of the locations used in the film for their gritty reality have already transformed or will soon be transforming right before our eyes - and all without the magic of Hollywood special effects. read on…

Valuable Deconstruction
