_DSC2278Drive-in cinema in a parking lot by the sea. An Argentinean soap opera is projected on the screen. On the stage, the two leading actors dub the scenes. The language they use changes, the translation becomes dubious, the design of the subtitles and the conventions of the genre are also transformed. The outcome is the last and only episode of a soap opera that exists on the border between mass television culture and avant-garde performance.
