“Dobles is an investigation that explores the political and economic history of dubbing in Mexico. Obeid problematizes the split between body and voice that characterizes this profession. The economic capital of voice actors is the ability to shed their voice, transform it and lend it to another body. But by not having a visible and recognizable body in the middle, they are easily replaceable and disposable. These interviews reveal the potentialities and risks of this condition, from its labor injustices to the ingenuity with which the actors of the Mexican golden age mocked the censorship system that prevails over the media.”
