Rosi & Brian Selected for Spanish version of eye-opening documentary, Raising of America, on PBS

Spanish Version of Raising of America

Brian and I recently had the immense honor of once again being chosen as part of a select cast of narrators to overdub  a documentary in Spanish and raise our voices for educational justice. “Raising of America,” is an extraordinary and revealing 5-part documentary featured on PBS stations nationwide and online.

“We needed to fit the Spanish into the English perfectly. Rosi and Brian always paced their delivery so it matched as closely as possible and nailed it. They were also adept at matching the emotions of the original characters. Plus, these two are always on happy drugs!”     –Sabrina Avilés, Spanish Version & Associate Producer, Raising of America’s “Wounded Places” segment.


Educational Inequity
Both Brian and I feel passionately that this is an issue that needs to be an urgent priority in the United States. This series addresses the questions of why so many children in America are faring so poorly and how might we, as a nation, do better.


One of Our Passions
While we frequently overdub web videos in Spanish, working on documentaries is a passion for us. We voiced many different characters throughout the five segments in neutral Latin American Spanish, from social workers and researchers to parents and doctors, which is always a welcome challenge as actors. Brian even got to be the voice of Vice President Walter Mondale!
