Synopsis: 

Recife’s anonymous and inexplicably eerie luxury apartment towers provide the setting for Neighbouring Sounds, Kleber Mendonça Filho’s strange, sinister and subtly incisive study of Brazil’s bourgeoisie and the elaborate surveillance apparatus that provides them with a dubious sense of safety.
