Preview: Castle Cinema celebrates Dubbers

Jørn Tomter's exhibition shines a light on the unsung heroes of the acting industry

A new exhibition brings some of cinema’s least visible stars into focus. 

In his latest project, local photographer Jorn Tomter has trained his lens on voice dubbing actors, examining the people who record the dialogue of Hollywood superstars such as Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Scarlett Johansson when their films are translated for the German market.

The DUBBERS series is being exhibited, appropriately enough, at Castle Cinema, Clapton’s newly reopened cinema above Eat 17.

Dubbing is big business in Germany, and most of Tomter’s subjects have voices that are instantly recognisable across the country. Their faces, however, remain anonymous and it is this gulf that Tomter probes, often with unexpected poignancy.

Catch DUBBERS at The Castle Cinema, Homerton until 20 April. The exhibition is open on weekdays from 5.30pm to 11pm, Saturdays 2pm to 11pm, and Sundays 1pm to 9pm.
