In his spellbinding documentary, Peter Stephan Jungk reflects on the remarkable life of his great aunt, Edith Tudor-Hart. She was one of the most innovative and iconic photographers working in Britain during the 1930s and 40s. Her naturalistic style starkly depicted the social issues of the day: poverty, slum housing, and child welfare.

She was also a KGB spy who recruited Kim Philby and helped create the Cambridge Five, the Soviet Union’s most successful spy ring in the United Kingdom (which was the inspiration for John le Carré’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).
