UKJF: Tracking Edith

Cinema

Directed by Peter Stephan Jungk | 2016 | Austria, Germany, Russia | In English, French, German and Russian with English subtitles | 90mins | Certificate PG

The life and work of photographer and spy, Edith Tudor-Hart.

Edith Tudor-Hart’s pioneering photography documented the social ills of its time, focusing on poverty and child welfare in 1930s and 1940s Britain. These concerns were also the driving force behind Tudor-Hart's second, clandestine, career as a KGB spy.

Born in Austria into a Jewish family, Tudor-Hart was a committed communist. Working in the UK, she was instrumental in the creation of the Cambridge Five, the Soviet Union’s successful spy ring (which was also the inspiration for John le Carré’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and the recruitment of Kim Philby.

Director Peter Stephan Jungk, Tudor-Hart’s great nephew, looks back on her extraordinary, double life, which married art with politics, and her quest for social justice.
