The Mole Agent / El Agente Topo

Maite Alberdi, Chile, USA, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, 2020, 84’

Through the eyes of a deeply compassionate 80-year-old mole, this elegant mix of a spy film and an observational documentary shows the life in a Chilean retirement home. Humorous yet painfully poignant, the film is a sweeping meditation on human nature, loneliness, dignity, and societal restraints in what is often a marginalised and disregarded social group.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with Maite Alberdi, the director of the film.

The implementation will take place in a situation-adapted format and taking into account all applicable preventive measures and instructions.
