Marcell Jankovics’ Son Of The White Mare Getting A Masters Of Cinema Release

The Greatest Psychedelic Animated Movie Ever Made

Eureka Entertainment continue to expand their ever impressive The Master Of Cinema Series.  The latest film to join is Marcell Jankovics’ underground animated masterpiece Son Of The White Mare. Coming  to  4K restored Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in November.

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 himself.  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.

Eureka Entertainment have created a new Trailer to promote the release, enjoy…
