From 'Magallanes.'

Daily Buzz catches up with director Salvador Del Solar and actor Christian Meier (Magallanes) in the lobby of the Hotel Intercontinental while they are in Toronto promoting their film. Magallanes made its international debut at the 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival last week and Daily Buzz host/producer Irene Cho talks with Del Solar and Meier about why it took 8 years to bring the project to the screen, why they never gave up, what it was like working together as friends who grew up together in Peru, how the film has triggered a political movement at home, and what it really means to them to have the support of Peruvians and Latin Americans.
