South Bay Film Society

Screening ended.

Chilean director Maite Alberdi’s documentary is a delightful character study that unfolds as an intricate spy thriller, in which a sweet-natured 83-year-old widower infiltrates a nursing home at the behest of a private detective.   It’s a unique meditation on compassion and loneliness that will seep into your heart and never let go.

“A refreshing, beautifully made documentary set in a nursing home under suspicion of elder neglect, Maite Alberdi’s THE MOLE AGENT begins with its tongue in cheek but grows quite moving by its end.” – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

“THE MOLE AGENT may not look like a documentary, but it builds to a poetic finale enmeshed in emotional authenticity.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“Sergio is the most charming man you will ever meet!” – Linda Berler, South Bay Film Society

Language: Spanish (English subtitles)

FOR VIEWING HELP CLICK HERE.   The help includes instructions on how to use Roku or Apple TV to view on your tv or how to mirror to your tv using Chromecast or other devices.

VIEWING OPTIONS: (the film can be viewed as often as you wish for 5 days from the date of your order.   I recommend closing any other web pages, devices and programs competing with the film for internet speed):

Option 1: Watch the film on any computer, laptop, ipad, chromebook or other mobile devices by clicking on the “unlock” button (you can do it immediately upon purchase or later from the purchase confirmation sent to your email).

Option 2: Mirror or cast the film from a computer, laptop, or chromebook to your television.   (For this film, screen mirroring is not possible from an iPad or iPhone).

Option 3: Use Apple TV to download the “Eventive TV” app from the Apple TV App Store (accessible via your TV).   When you open the app for the first time you’ll see an activation code. On another device, please navigate to watch.eventive.org/tv, then login if necessary and use the code to connect your account.   Now, select from the available channels on the Eventive Apple TV app to begin watching.   All of your unlocked content will be available on the app.   If a program has not already been unlocked, you’ll have to unlock it on another device such as a laptop or mobile device first.

Option 4: Use Roku to download the “Eventive TV” app: Search for “Eventive TV” in the Roku Channel Store on your Roku. You can also add the Eventive TV app to your Roku via the Roku website.
