Mole Agent, The


Chilean filmmaker Maite Alberdi won MFF's 2015 Documentary Audience prize for Tea Time. Now she returns with "the most heartwarming spy movie ever made" (Indiewire). Sergio Chamy is an 83-year-old widower recruited by a detective agency. His assignment is to go undercover at a nursing home to see if residents are being mistreated. The stylish film plays like a work of comic fiction and reminds us how much seniors have to offer us.
