Founding the Cinemateca de Cuba

Herman was one of the founding duo of the original Cinemateca de Cuba. His love of film (especially French) lead him to combine forces with Ricardo Vigon and develop a Cinema Club. Following Herman's visit to the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris, they decided to take their cinema club as far as it could possible go and fought political pressure along with fellow cine-enthusiasts to relaunch their Cinema Club using the organisational structure and model of the Cinematheque Francaise. Thanks to invaluable support from Henri Langlois their dreams were for a short time realised.
