ESCENA. Oslo Ibero-amerikanske filmdager 2021
Chilean director Maite Alberdi’s delightful character study 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. The plan goes awry with all kinds of comical and touching results.
Warm and funny, THE MOLE AGENT offers audiences a poignant reminder that it's never too late to forge new connections and embark on new adventures.
The film has received wide international acclaim and was nominated for the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2021.
ESCENA. Oslo Ibero-amerikanske filmdager is a platform for cultural exchange between Norway and the Ibero-American region.
ESCENA 21 will present 10 films with wide international recognition of great directors and filmmakers from 7 different countries. Some films will show a realistic portrait of a social and cultural reality, while others take a more magical or even surreal approach.
This year’s edition aims to bring forward the diversity of the Ibero-American cultures: from underground comic book authors to indigenous cultures, from LGTBQ+ rights to elite panic and from the reclaiming of ethnic identity to the life of the elderly.
Accompanying the film program, there will be additional events that will provide an appropriate context for the films, such as conversation with the filmmakers, dance performances and round tables in collaboration with other associations.
