2021 Oscar Nominee for Best Documentary Feature!

"The most heartwarming spy movie ever made... delightful."–Eric Kohn, Indiewire


When a family becomes concerned about their mother’s wellbeing in a retirement home, private investigator Romulo hires Sergio, an 83 year-old man who becomes a new resident and a mole inside the home.

Sergio struggles to balance his assignment with becoming increasingly involved in the lives of several residents.

Maite Alberdi’s THE MOLE AGENT is a stylish combination of an observational documentary and a spy movie, with sleek camerawork and wonderfully watchable characters. It’s a unique meditation on compassion and loneliness that will infiltrate your heart and never let go.
