"A Useful Life": After twenty-five years, Cinemateca Uruguaya's most devoted employee, Jorge, still finds his inspiration in caring for the films and audiences that grace the seats and screen of his beloved arthouse cinema. But when dwindling attendance and diminishing support force the theater to close its doors, Jorge is sent into a world he knows only through the lens of art—and suddenly forced to discover a new passion that transcends his once-celluloid reality. Stylishly framed in black-and-white with brilliantly understated performances, Federico Veiroj's sly and loving homage to the soul of cinema is a universally appealing gem and knowing charmer about life after the movies.
