One of the great psychedelic masterpieces of world animation, Hungarian animator Marcell Jankovics’s SON OF THE WHITE MARE (1981) is a swirling, color-mad tale of mythic monsters and Scythian heroes — part-epic, part-Yellow Submarine — styled by jagged bolts of lightning and drenched in rivers of blue, red, gold and green. Based on a Hungarian myth, the story begins at a massive cosmic oak that 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. Never before released in North America, SON OF THE WHITE MARE has been newly restored in 4K using the original 35mm camera negative and sound elements by Arbelos in collaboration with the Hungarian Film Archive. Jankovics supervised the entire process himself, and the film is once again ready to take its rightful place as one of the greatest animated features of all time.
