The Pigeon Tunnel

This deeply engaging exploration of British spy novelist John le Carré remains gripping throughout while also being handled with care by documentarian Errol Morris. With music from revered composer Philip Glass and Scotland's Paul Leonard-Morgan, the author opens up about his disreputable father and meditates on the thin divide between fact and fiction. Co-produced by The Ink Factory.





Explore the life and career of former spy David Cornwell - better known by his pen name, John le Carré - set against the backdrop of the Cold War leading up to present day. The film spans sixty years as the British author delivers his final and most frank interview, interlaced with extraordinary archival footage and dramatised scenes.
