House of the Hedgehog

Animated episode of the story by Branko Ćopić “House of the Hedgehog” was selected to be produced for the project Individual Utopias Now and Then because of the idea that is presented in the story. Hedgehog remained us all to care for the places we live, for our natural habitat and that our individual utopias can be realised in our home.

Like Hedgehog said “My home is my castle”.

House of the Hedgehog talks about the Hedgehog who lived in the modest old wood in the forest. One day he was invited to dinner by Miss Fox that lives in lavish and glamorous house. They eat and drink and enjoy in conversation until late at night but Hedgehog even after Miss Fox insisting to stay and spend the night in her rich and comfortable house, refused and heads back home. Miss Fox is surprised, even a bit insulted that her hospitality was rejected and wants to see why. She follows hedgehog in the shadow of the night through the tick forest. On her way she meets a wolf, a bear and a boar. They all join her curious why Hedgehog loves his house so much. They suspect that he lives in unimaginable wealth but they are surprised to see what the truth really is…
