The Black Hedgehog

Le Hérisson Noir

Swiss, 2020, 26'

To begin with, the short opens up the anti-racist struggle by means of investigating the reporting of a cake that’s on display in a bakery window. By appealing to the cinema's judgement and creating a space where all voices can be heard, the film looks for a way to encourage dialogue and re-evaluate certain controversial images.

The event is finished.
