Soviet Film Wednesday: Hedgehog in the Fog

Hedgehog in the Fog

Today we have another wonderful Yuri Norstein film, Hedgehog in the Fog.  Norstein is best known for this animation, as well as his Tale of TalesHedgehog in the Fog was directed by Norstein, written by Sergei Kozlov, with music by Mikhail Meyerovich.  It was produced by Soyuzmultfilm in 1975.

It is the story of a hedgehog and a bear cub who meet to have tea and to count the stars.  One evening the hedgehog decides to bring raspberry jam, and on that night, hedgehog has an adventure through a dense fog in which he sees several animals, including a beautiful white horse.

Soviet Film Wednesday celebrates the artistry of Soviet filmmakers and in no way endorses the war in Ukraine.
