VAF Artist presents The Son of the white mare. Som en del af VAF Artist programmet, afsluttes dette års festival med visningen af kultklassikeren Son of the White Mare, en ungarsk animeret fantasy-eventyrfilm fra 1981 instrueret af den verdens anerkendte instruktør, Marcell Jankovics. Marcell Jankovics (1941-2021) var pioner indenfor ungarsk animation. Han arbejdede på tværs af flere medier, som både grafiker, filminstruktør, animator og forfatter. Marcell Jankovics har altid haft en dyb fascination for (ungarske) folkefortællinger, som han har brugt i sine film, da de indeholder tidløse, universelle fortællinger og temaer og hans stil er farverig, grafisk, psykedelisk, til tider næsten abstrakt. I hans mesterværk Son of the White Mare fra 1981, en drømmeagtige ungarske folkemyte føder en hestegudinde tre magtfulde brødre, der drager ud i underverdenen for at redde tre prinsesser fra tre onde drager og generobre deres forfædres tabte rige. I filmen følger vi manden, Fehérlófia (Threeshaker), som er den tredje søn af hesten, og som ejer overmenneskelig magt. Son of the White Mare er en hvirvlende, farvegal malstrøm af mytiske monstre og skytiske helte, dels Nibelungenlied, dels Yellow Submarine, oplyst af takkede lyn og skyllet i floder af blå, rød, guld og grøn. God fornøjelse med et af verdens animations store psykedeliske mesterværker!

---------------------

As part of the VAF Artist program, this year's festival concludes with the screening of the cult classic Son of the White Mare, a 1981 Hungarian animated fantasy adventure film directed by the worldrenowned director, Marcell Jankovics. Marcell Jankovics (1941-2021) was a pioneer in Hungarian animation. He worked across several media, as a graphic designer, film director, animator and author. Marcell Jankovics has always had a deep fascination with (Hungarian) folk tales, which he has used in his films, as they contain timeless, universal narratives and themes and his style is colorful, graphic, psychedelic, sometimes almost abstract. In his 1981 masterpiece Son of the White Mare, a dreamlike Hungarian folk myth, a horse goddess gives birth to three powerful brothers who set out into the underworld to rescue three princesses from three evil dragons and recapture the lost kingdom of their ancestors. In the film, we follow the man, Fehérlófia (Threeshaker), who is the third son of the horse and who possesses superhuman power. Son of the White Mare is a swirling, colorful maelstrom of mythical monsters and Scythian heroes, partly Nibelungenlied, partly Yellow Submarine, lit by jagged bolts of lightning and drenched in rivers of blue, red, gold and green. Enjoy one of the world's animation's great psychedelic masterpieces!
