Edith Tudor-Hart was one of the most innovative and iconic photographers working in Britain during the 1930s and 1940s; she was also one of the Soviet Union’s most valued spies and an architect of the Cambridge Five.
Directed by her great nephew, Peter Stephan Jungk, Tracking Edith reflects on Tudor-Hart’s extraordinary life, both as an undercover agent and a deeply empathetic photographer, depicting the social deprivation of the day.
