This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

Marcell Jankovics' stunning 1981 odyssey radiates with a refreshing energy, pushing the boundaries of the animated form even by its own hallucinogenic standards.

Unfolding like artwork etched onto a cave wall and brought to restless life by an unclassifiable spell that only cinema can muster, each scene in Son of the White Mare is imbued with timeless purpose: of people fighting for their land, their rituals, and their very existence. It’s an 85-minute legend told in stunning light and sound, familiar to all and yet transcendent all the same — a mind-blowing journey with a lot on its mind.
