NALIP&THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LATINO INDEPENDENT PRODUCERS-“THE MOLE AGENT” DIRECTED BY MAITE ALBERDIPRODUCED BY MARCELA SANTIBAÑEZ
Sergio is a Chilean spy. Sort of. At least, he is offered the role of one after a casting session organized by Detective Romulo, a private investigator who needs a credible mole to infiltrate a retirement home. Romulo’s client, the concerned daughter of a resident, suspects her mother is being abused and hires him to find out what is really happening. However, Sergio is 83, not 007, and not an easy trainee when it comes to technology and spying techniques. But he is a keen student, looking for ways to distract himself after recently losing his wife. What could be a better distraction than some undercover spy action? While gathering intelligence, Sergio grows close to several residents and realizes that the menacing truth beneath the surface is not what anyone had suspected.
THE MOLE AGENT is an award-winning 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.
Directed by Maite Alberdi and produced by Marcela Santibañez, THE MOLE AGENT is the Chilean submission to the Academy Awards® 2021 for Best International Feature and is nominated for an Oscar® for Best Documentary Feature.

NALIP seeks to change media culture by advocating and promoting the professional needs of Latinx artists in media. Standing at the forefront of that systemic change, our organization works with industry leaders towards seeing a more inclusive future both on and off screen. While the world has seen some improvement since our founding there is still much work to be done. The Latinx Community continues to be grossly underrepresented within the entertainment industry – and we are here to help ensure we continue to move forward in the right direction.
Founded in 1999, a group of producers, content creators, academics, and media advocates tired of their fight to be heard came together in search of building community. Since then, NALIP has strived to work towards discovering, promoting, and inspiring Latinx Content creators with our multifaceted programs.
Through our Latino Media Resource Project and Latino Lens Programs, our team not only tracks existing creators but builds and mentors upcoming talent. Our annual events, such as NALIP Media Summit, Latino Media Fest, and Diverse Women’s Forum, showcases major shapeshifters in media and provides a platform for people to organically come together and make connections.
No matter what leg of the industry you see yourself in – writer, director, editor, executive – NALIP has a space in our community for you to seek out tools and connections that could propel you to the next level.
NALIP is here to service our community, inspire, and work towards creating a more inclusive culture within media. For more information on NALIP: https://www.nalip.org
