See this film: Neighboring Sounds at the Paramount Center

The issues of class and racial conflict revealed in the Trayvon Martin case also surface in Neighboring Sounds (2012), a highly-lauded slice-of-life crime drama by Brazilian director Kleber Mendonça Filho. When a well-to-do neighborhood in Recife experiences a crime surge, the residents hire a private security company, a move that has unexpected consequences, revealing the city's social divisions as well as the oppressiveness and everyday annoyances of urban living. Let's just say that corruption, vigilantism, and a barking dog figure prominently. Part of ArtsEmerson's outstanding "Festival Focus" series showcasing great but hard to find films from the festival circuit, Neighboring Sounds screens Friday, May 18- for free, courtesy of the Consulate-General of Brazil in Boston - at 8:15 pm and Saturday, May 18 at 6 pm at the Paramount Center, 559 Washington St, Boston | $10; $7.50 seniors; $5 students | or 617.824.8400.
