Son of the White Mare

Marcell Jankovics / HU, 1981 / 80 min.

Arguably one of the greatest animated films of all time, Marcell Jankovics' cutting-edge masterpiece is an adaptation of the ancient legends of the early nomadic Steppe people.

The film has a rather special position in the history of animated film, because it can be best described as an abstract version of tales, both in its visual representation and its storytelling. Being a radical example of the ornamental style, the film produces a dreamlike visual world, which is created from the continuous presence of metamorphoses, changing of colours, and recurring images of lightnings, shatters, and mandala. Son of the White Mare is quite simply: a trip through myths and folklore!
