PICTURES OF GHOSTS, 2023, Dir. Kleber Mendonça Filho, 93 Min, Grasshopper Film/Gratitude Films, Brazil
In Portuguese with English subtitles.
PICTURES OF GHOSTS, from acclaimed director Kleber Mendonca Filho, is a multidimensional journey through time, sound, architecture and filmmaking, set in the urban landscape of Recife, Brazilian coastal capital of Pernambuco: a historical and human territory, examined through the great movie theatres that served as spaces of conviviality during the 20th century. Having hosted dreams and progress, these places have also embodied a major transformation on social practices. Combining archive documentary, mystery, film clips and personal memories, PICTURES OF GHOSTS is a map of a city through the lens of cinema.
NEIGHBORING SOUNDS, 2012, Dir. Kleber Mendonca Filho, 131 Min, Cinema Guild, Brazil
NEIGHBORING SOUNDS is the thrilling debut from Brazilian filmmaker Kleber Mendonca Filho. On a quiet city block in the coastal city of Recife, ruled by an aging patriarch and his sons, a recent spate of petty crime has rattled the nerves of the well-to-do residents. When a mysterious security firm is brought in to watch over the neighborhood, it sparks the fears and anxieties of a divided society still haunted by its past.
