Main Program

Neighboring Sounds / Kleber Mendonca Filho

Life in a middle-class neighborhood 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 neighbor’s dog. A slice of “Braziliana,” a reflection on history, violence and noise.
