Marcell Jankovics - Fehérlófia (1981)

"One of the great psychedelic masterpieces of world animation, Son of the White Mare ("Fehérlófia") 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.....

"Son of the White Mare... has previously never been released in US theaters. However, thanks to Metrograph and Arbelos Films, audiences will be able to not only watch ‘White Mare’ but will see the film in a new 4K restoration that was created using the original 35mm camera negative and sound elements by Arbelos in collaboration with the Hungarian Film Archive."
