DOCUMENTARY | DOCU-DRAMA:
Meet Sergio Chamy, the world’s most unlikely spy. Recently widowed this Chilean octogenarian answers a newspaper classified ad calling for a discreet elderly male competent with technology. After a successful interview, Sergio is briefed on the actual details of his covert mission. To go undercover for three months as a resident at the San Francisco Retirement Home. Firmly believing a client’s mother is being mistreated and even robbed, Sergio has to report back on anything that doesn’t look right to a detective agency. While he has little to no success in terms of his primary mission, his snooping uncovers some disturbing sights and practices, a serial criminal, but most poignantly, some reflective thinking about placing our loved ones into care.
Nominated for best documentary in the 2021 Academy Awards, The Mole Agent blurs the lines of reality and drama to present a terrific, thought-provoking entertainment.
