Birthed from a celestial horse, three demi-gods plunge into the underworld to save three princesses. This swirling, color-mad maelstrom of ancient monsters and heroes is a poetic epic and a long-lost wonder of underground world animation.

Part-Nibelungenlied, part-Yellow SubmarineSon of the White Mare is 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 National Film Institute.
