SELECTED: SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL 2020

Chilean director Maite Alberdi’s delightful character study follows sweet-natured elderly widower, Sergio, as he infiltrates a nursing home at the behest of a private detective agency. Unfortunately, Sergio is a truly terrible spy. He answers phone calls on speaker in front of other residents, asks the carers blatant and obvious questions, breaks spy camera equipment and more. Although no James Bond, he's a kind-hearted man who brings solace and the frisson of attention to the mostly female residents with tender patience and platonic affection. Alberdi's films have long been popular on the festival circuit, including Sydney Film Festival, for their remarkable warmth and humanity. Her latest work, The Mole Agent, is no exception. Her compassionate, often humorous, never judgmental, approach, paints a poignant portrait of life in a Chilean care home and perils of being a spy.
