Life in a middle-class neighbourhood in present day Recife, Brazil, takes an unexpected turn after the arrival of an independent private security firm. The presence of these men brings a sense of safety and a good deal of anxiety to a culture which runs on fear. Meanwhile, Bia, married and mother of two, must find a way to deal with the constant barking and howling of her neighbour's dog.
Neighbouring Sounds is a subtle, intelligent and utterly engrossing slice-of-life portrait of the Brazilian town of Recife, raising questions about colonial history, the prevalence of technology and the changing nature of community.
A bold, compelling debut feature from one of world cinema's most exciting new voices.
