Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

One of the Spanish-speaking film world's most respected producers, Gerardo Herrero is a vocal advocate of cinematic collaboration between Spain and Latin America. Born and raised in Madrid, Herrero completed a law degree before founding the production company Litmus Films in 1987. His debut as a producer arrived the following year with the tense war drama "The Lion's Den," set against the real-life war in the Peruvian Andes between the military and the Shining Path guerrillas. Herreo earned international recognition with the 1994 Cuba-set comedy "Guantanamera," a critical smash that led to his 1996 directorial debut, "Malena Es un Nombre de Tango." Herrero continued to build his reputation as a director with the stark "Comanche Territory," a film adaptation of a novel by Arturo Perez-Reverte set during the Bosnian War of the early 1990s. In an effort to erase national boundaries and create films rooted in a common mother language, over the years Herrero has taken on numerous projects with acclaimed Latin-American directors, including Argentina's Adolfo Aristarain and Mexico's Arturo Ripstein.
