New 4K Restoration from the original 35mm camera negative!

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. 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 Film Archive.

Hungary, 1981, 81 minutes, Not Rated, In Hungarian with English subtitles, Directed by Marcell Jankovics

  • "One of the greatest animated features of all time"

    —Fantastic Fest
  • "Jankovics’ unique and unmistakable visual style is informed here by folk-art motifs, jazzy geometry, rich pop psychedelia and even the arcade-game zap so fresh on the scene in 1981"

    —Fantasia Film Festival
  • “Offers wildly inventive, psychedelic animation with astonishing artistic flourishes and dazzling storytelling.”

    – Diane Carson, KDHX (ST. LOUIS)
  • “This is a spectacle to be absorbed and analyzed. Find the biggest screen you can, and make your own footnotes.”

    – Richard Whittaker, AUSTIN CHRONICLE
  • “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
  • “May be the greatest psychedelic animated movie ever made…The animation invites readymade comparisons to two earlier stalwarts of the genre, ‘Fantastic Planet’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’…”
