    Legendary Hungarian animator Marcell Jankovics created a definitive masterpiece of world cinema with this psychedelic adaptation of the Hungarian folk tale.

    Traversing an otherworldly canvas, Son of the White Mare [Fehérlófia] follows mythic folk heroes Treeshaker, Stonecrumbler, and Irontemperer as they descend into the perilous Underworld on an epic quest to battle the forces of ancient evil and save the cosmos.

    An astonishing fantasy epic, this kaleidoscopic medley of ground-breaking animation styles comes to home video for the first time ever in the UK as part of the Masters of Cinema series. Presented from a 2019 4K restoration supervised and approved by director Marcell Jankovics, this release also includes Jankovics’ debut feature–and the first ever Hungarian animated feature film–Johnny Corncob [János Vitéz] (1973), as well as a selection of his short films.

    Special Features:
    Johnny Corncob (János Vitéz) – Jankovics first animated feature
    Sisyphus – short film
    The Struggle (Küzdők) – short film
    Dreams on Wings – short film created as a commercial for Air India
    Brighter Colors – extensive interview with Marcell Jankovics from the Hungarian National Film Archive, filmed in 2020
    Making of János Vitéz – archival featurette from 1973
    The Director Talks – featurette with Jankovics produced by the Hungarian National Film Archive
    PLUS: Collector’s Booklet featuring a new essay by film writer Rich Johnson
