One of the year’s best so far, Brazilian film critic-turned-director Kleber Mendonça Filho’s festival favourite Neighbouring Sounds (O Som ao Redor, 2012) arrives on DVD this Monday (24 June) following a limited theatrical release back in March. Starring Irandhir Santos and Gustavo Jahn, and set within a closed-off residential community in the northern coastal city of Recife, Neighbouring Sounds’ offers up a complex narrative as lives intertwine and old feuds resurface. To celebrate, we have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Life in a middle-class neighbourhood in present day Recife, Brazil, 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. A slice of Brazilian, and a reflection on history, violence and noise.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE DVD copies of Neighbouring Sounds, just answer the following simple question:
