The basic function of Arabic subtitles in a foreign film is translation. The subtitle works within the context of the film as a narration to the story as well as an explanation of the action that accompanies it. Therefore, the impact of the picture precedes that of the subtitle and creates the framework for it. When removed from the context of the film and re-exported with the image of the film, the function of the subtitle is transformed from confirming meaning to actually producing it. It is re-born as a unique source of content, with no past or alternative function.
