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 screen and seats of his beloved arthouse cinema. But when dwindling attendance and diminishing support force the theater to close its doors, Jorge enters a world he knows only through the lens of film—and he is suddenly forced to discover a new passion that transcends his celluloid-dominated reality. With stylish black-and-white photography and brilliantly understated performances, Federico Veiroj's sly and loving homage to the soul of cinema is a crowd-pleasing, knowing charmer about life beyond the movies. A USEFUL LIFE (LA VIDA UTIL) is presented in Spanish with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection, presented by the Global Film Initiative.
