Son of the White Mare (Feherlofia)

This psychedelic, folklore-steeped Hungarian fantasy is one of the most flat-out stunning animated films you're ever likely to see, a vividly colored tale of heroes and monsters that at once shows the influence of the more far-out strains of '80s graphic design and looks like nothing else in the world. To combat seventy-seven dragons rooted in a towering oak tree at the gates of the Underworld, a mare goddess births three sons who set out to slay the baddies and save the day, their epic mission depicted in an eye-popping kaleidoscope of shape-shifting shades, visible now in their original grandeur thanks to a ravishing restoration from the original camera negative supervised by legendary director Jankovics.
