Neighbouring Sounds takes place in a middle- class neighbourhood in present-day Recife, Brazil, where a private security firm opens an office. The presence of these new neighbours brings a sense of safety as well as an overriding sense of anxiety to the local culture. Maids, tutors, security guards, wealthy wives and their progeny engage ambivalently with their neighbours and their own identity, caught within urban, global, class and gendered behaviours.

The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.
