Neighbouring Sounds

O Som ao Redor

Brazil, 2012
Drama, Thriller


Meandering past the residents of a wealthy street in Recife, where private security guards ply their trade, this self-assured debut portrays the two sides of the Brazilian Dream. Filho scratches the varnish of a culture that revolves around paranoia, fear and revenge.
