A gripping documentary about renowned British/Austrian photographer Edith Tudor-Hart who led a double life as a secret agent for the KGB and was one of the architects of the Soviet Union’s most successful spy ring in Great Britain.

‘Tracking Edith is a fascinating but sprawling feature documentary whose structure matches its subject's chaotic life.’ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
