Noise is a politically subversive tragic-comedy a salutation to the social engagé of the Griersonian tradition. The film creatively dramatizes the story of a documentarist who suffers from hyper-acoustic sensitivity, which makes his life in Tel Aviv, one of the noisiest urban locations on earth, a living hell. Tormented by the belief that they live in an incredibly noisy society, the award-winning couple of Israeli filmmakers resolves to investigate the issue: they install cameras in their house to capture sources of this formidable sonic mass that invades their daily lives.
