“Hedgehog in the Fog” (1975)

I’ve always had a soft spot for animated shorts in which every single frame looks like it could be freeze framed and hung in an art museum. This one, of course, is no different. The animation in this is somehow both crude and beautiful at the same time, creating a style that’s wholly its own, and without coming across as showy. On top of that, the short’s eerie and mystical atmosphere makes this experience one-of-a-kind. It may not be deep or complex, given it is a relatively simplistic premise, but the film’s incredible presentation and style means this is a gripping, beautiful short that will stick with you long after it’s over.
