Neighboring Sounds (Portuguese: O Som ao Redor) is a 2012 Brazilian drama film directed and written by Kleber Mendonça Filho, produced by Emilie Lesclaux and starring Irandhir Santos, Gustavo Jahn and Maeve Jinkings.
The film entered the list of top films of 2012 made by film critic Anthony Oliver Scott from The New York Times. The film was screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and was released nationally on January 4, 2013. The film was selected as the Brazilian submission in the foreign-language race for the 86th Academy Awards, but it was not nominated.

Plot
Life in a middle-class neighbourhood in present day Recife 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 (Maeve Jinkings), married and mother of two, must find a way to deal with the constant barking and howling of her neighbour’s dog.
