Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

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.
