‘The Hedgehog’—Short About a Lonely Boy Who Dresses Up as Sonic the Hedgehog


Written and directed by Chris Lee and Paul Storrie, this dark short features a young boy in a Sonic the Hedgehog costume, searching for adventure but finding something else instead. And it’s here where the film takes a darker tone, exploring the idea of Peter-Pan Syndrome and not wanting to grow up.

In an increasingly infantilised world, it’s a poignant rumination on how sometimes we might all want to escape from reality and become a child again.
