The waves of water and blood over Europe in Jung’s dreams and “visions”, and his decision to face the threats and the unfamiliar they were carrying with them.The wave of Nazism. The waves of the music from the 1960s, the protests, and the whole diversity represented through the political and cultural changes in Europe and in the world. The wave of globalization and the desire to break down walls.The waves of the Mediterranean that bring migrants’ boats ashore. The wave of populism and racism which increases the division of the psyche, closes borders and builds walls. Through the “ethical comparison” proposed by Jung as a crucial component of Active Imagination, and through some meaningful images and clips from films by directors as S. Spielberg, C. Nolan, E. Scola and G. Rosi, the Author will try to explore how the individual and collective European psyche has faced the waves since World War II; the same waves that led and still lead us to face and confront ourselves with the unfamiliar.
Keywords: Active Imagination, Shadow, Trickster, Borders, Ethical Comparison, Synchronicity
