Episode 11: Narcopolis Interview: Behind the Lens (and Pen) with Justin Trefgarne

Narcopolis is new film in the time travel genre, involving a dystopian world where drugs are legal and there’s a conspiracy involving a new super-drug and the mega-corp that makes it.


I had a Skype conversation with the producer, writer, and director Justin Trefgarne, where we talked about his background (including what draws him to science fiction), his process for both writing and directing (and whether he can separate the two roles), doing a science fiction movie on a strict budget, and where he got the idea behind the movie. It all started with a storage locker.

Narcopolis opened October 2 and is available on video on demand. For more information, visit the website. (Running time: 25 minutes, 42 seconds)
