Un impulso colectivo - Curts Spain 6 min Fiction

Synopsis

Freud described the sinister (unheimlich) as a contradictory experience where the strange is presented to us as known and the known becomes strange. A granddaughter discovers that her grandmother’s past was very different from what she had been told. Could it be that in times of war, morale is contingent on survival?
