Hedgehogs and the City (Ezi un lielpilseta) by Evalds Lacis

Watch more with these video collections:

When a forest paradise is paved over and replaced by a city full of people, the local animals have to figure out how to adapt. “It isn’t just things to eat that Hedgehog, Wild Boar, and the other animals encounter,” summarizes the Berlin International Film Festival. “There are people there too and they all seem to have their troubles and woes.”

“Somebody’s keys fall down the drain, a ball gets stuck in a tree, a child cries, or the bathroom is dirty. No problem for the animals. Hedgehog fetches the keys, Bird gets the ball, and Raccoon cleans the bath until it shines.”
