Storyboard Text

  • "Antigone- Ismene, I am going to bury him. Will you come?" "Ismene- Bury him? You have just said of the new law forbids it." "Antigone- He is my brother. And is your brother, too.
  • "Creon- Out with it!" Sentry- Well, Then; the dead man- Polyneices- out there- someone- new dust on old slimy flesh! Someone has given it a burial that way, and gone..." "Creon- And the man who dared do this?" (Sophocles)
  • "Antigone- Yes. Save yourself. I shall not envy you (...)" " Ismene- You are alive, but I belong to death." "Creon- Gentlemen, I beg you to observe these girls: One has just now lost her mind; the other has never had a mind at all.''
  • After their father had died, Antigone had returned back to her home town of Thebes. She obtains knowledge that both of her brothers are dead and only one is properly buried. She is determined to give him a proper burial and asks her sister, Ismene, to help and she denies. She hints how scared she is of Creon.
  • Creon was told by the Sentry that Polynecies has been buried and Creon tells him that if he does not find out who did it the blame will be placed on him. After he soon finds out that it was Antigone, he takes her to the king and Creon proceeds to ask her questions.
