Film critic-turned-director Kleber Mendonça Filho (‘Aquarius’) is back this month with his disturbing Cannes-winning Western, ‘Bacurau’. Discover the filmmaker’s feature debut ‘Neighbouring Sounds’ - a slice of “Braziliana” with a killer ending.
Life in a middle-class neighbourhood in present day suburb of 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.
