Mixing images of contemporary Romania, archive films and the fascinating files of the Romanian secret services compiled under Nicolae Ceausescu’s Communist regime, Sophie Dascal draws a mixed portrait of her mysterious grandfather; sketching out a wider reflection on identity, memory and the transmission of the traumas originating out of a totalitarian political regime.
