When she wasn’t working as a Soviet agent, she was taking photos of Vienna’s and London’s workers and street children, of poverty and social deprivation. Being a secret agent doesn’t seem to have come naturally to the photographer Edith Tudor-Hart (born Edith Suschitzky in 1908, in Vienna, died 1973 in Brighton). She recruited Kim Philby, and was one of the architects of the Cambridge Five, the Soviet Union’s most successful spy ring in Great Britain. Edith was Jungk’s great aunt, his mother’s cousin; the writer/film maker tries to unravel the truth about his aunt’s life, in Austria, Great Britain and Russia. A documentary about the renowned photographer, about a spy with a conscience and hidden secrets in a family.
Peter Stephan Jungk, prolific novelist, essayist, documentary film maker and screenwriter was born in the United States and raised in Austria and Germany. He studied screenwriting at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. Several of Jungk’s books have been published in the US and in Great Britain – his novel The Perfect American, a dramatic portrayal of Walt Disney’s last months, was turned into an opera by Philip Glass and premiered in 2013. Tracking Edith is based on Jungk's biography of his great aunt, published as "Die Dunkelkammern der Edith Tudor-Hart" by S. Fischer Verlag, Frankfurt in 2015.
