A Hedgehog's Visit

A painfully shy and lonely hedgehog arrives at a neighbor’s bearing a gift yet what does he have to offer when his spines always seem to get in the way.  This short for Cartoon Brew by Kariem Saleh is a tour de force in how complex emotions can be conveyed through animation.  As such it tells an incredibly touching, wordless story which is repeated the world over, in one shape or form, many times each day.
