Son of the White Mare

Brand new digital restoration! Directed by renowned Hungarian animator Marcell Jankovics, this film was just recently restored from the original 35mm camera negative, in collaboration with the Hungarian Film Archive.

One of the great psychedelic masterpieces of world animation, SON OF THE WHITE MARE is a swirling, color-mad maelstrom of mythic monsters and Scythian heroes, part-Nibelungenlied, part-YELLOW SUBMARINE, lit by jagged bolts of lightning and drenched in rivers of blue, red, gold and green. A massive cosmic oak stands at the gates of the Underworld, holding seventy-seven dragons in its roots; to combat these monsters, a dazzling white mare goddess gives birth to three heroes – Treeshaker and his brothers – who embark on an epic journey to save the universe.
