The story of Kim Philby, a double agent with a dark tale

This film, directed by George Carey, tells the tale of an M16 agent who led a complicated double life. This is a real story with an edge, a man who traded British secrets with Joseph Stalin. After failing to meet his wife at a dinner party in 1963, Philby defected to the Soviet Union, where he lived until his death working for the KGB. Carey delves into this intriguing tale, looking into the nature of intelligence and secret services, and the limitations in the British establishment that made this double life able happen at all. Best available seating. Your ticket includes an audience with director George Carey after the film screening.
