Dear friends,

I would like to invite you to a documentary film about Emilio Herrera Linares. Born in Granada, he was a pioneer of Spanish aviation and president of the government in exile of the Spanish Republic.

Although he was hardly known in public, his studies were fundamental for NASA when developing the space suits for the first men on the moon.

The documentary “Emilio Herrera” seeks to support the recovery of the historical memory of Spain trying to repair some of the injustices committed by Franco´s dictatorship.

Please arrive early. The capacity of the venue is limited.

Don´t miss this opportunity to learn a bit more about the history of Spain and its aviation!

Kind regards,
Selena Herrera, his great-granddaughter
