Tracking Edith
A film by Peter Stephan Jungk

Every family has its secrets.

Filmmaker Peter Stephan Jungk had always known that his great aunt, Edith Tudor-Hart, was a talented photographer. But it was not until 20 years after her death that he learned she had led a double life — and changed the course of history.

By speaking with military historians, photo archivists, ex-KGB agents and family members, Jungk unravels what had been a well-kept secret: that his great aunt was a KGB spy who brokered the introduction between Kim Philby and Soviet agent Arnold Deutsch, thereby helping launch the espionage career of Britain’s most notorious double agent, the lynchpin of the Cambridge Five spy ring.

Through these conversations and the striking photographs of Tudor-Hart herself, Jungk takes us on a journey into his great aunt's clandestine life that is as gripping as a spy novel.
