Marcell Jankovics was a globally-recognized director in Hungarian cinematic history, one of the most significant artists of Hungarian animation. Generations were brought up on his films, there was no greater authority of Hungarian culture and the world of storytelling. In 1982, at the Los Angeles animation Olympics, the film Fehérlófia (Son of the White Mare) by the director – winner of a Palme d’Or at Cannes and Oscar nominee – was selected one of the top 50 animation films of all time. The beauty of his works is best appreciated on the big screen in now fully restored versions, thus we welcome audiences outdoors and in Uránia.
