1981 • dir Marcell Jankovics • 85 min

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. Directed by Hungarian animator Marcell Jankovics (famed for his 1974 Oscar-nominated short Sisyphus), SON OF THE WHITE MARE has been restored in 4K using the original 35mm camera negative and sound elements by Arbelos in collaboration with the Hungarian National Film Institute.

“Beyond being historically significant and a truly gorgeous film, Son of the White Mare manages to connect with our most ancient arts and make them digestible for any viewer. It comes warmly recommended.”
– Caitlin Kennedy, Film Inquiry

NYT Critic’s Pick “The simultaneously geometric and fluid animation renders each mythic trope totally new.”
– Maya Phillips, New York Times

“‘Son of the White Mare’ offers wildly inventive, psychedelic animation with astonishing artistic flourishes and dazzling storytelling.”
– Diane Carson, KDHX
