It all started with a little idea-creative Mexicans team up with producers and talent from Hollywood to make a big movie. The panel will share the adventures, mishaps and experiences of Mexican filmmaker Ricardo Arnaiz and his producing partners Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica), Phil Roman (The Simpsons), Verónica Arceo, Alex Flores, Gerry Cardoso, and Michael D.
