The film world is in a state of flux. One of the most criticized and controversial inventions of the twentieth century is, without doubt, dubbing. Some people are in favour but some hate to hear a voice so unnatural that, most of the time, it doesn’t even match the moving lips of the actor. Because of this, there has been a tendency for cinema in their original languages lately. So nowadays, there are plenty of film festivals in OV. If you are interested in this topic and in the world of cinema in general, you shouldn’t miss Cineambigú in Barcelona, a series of films in their original versions.
Some of the contemporary movies will be shown for the very first time.
