Storyboard Text

  • The goddess Artemis is angry at King Oenesus because he forgot to make sacrifices with her. So she has sent a wild boar to destroy his country of Calydon. The king has asked the best hunters in Greece for help. When they arrive, Atalanta is with them. She stands before the king, looking lovely in her simple woolen robe. A quiver of arrows hangs over her left shoulder. Her right hand clasps her bow. The kings son Meleager falls in love with Atalanta instantly. Although some of the men dislike the idea of hunting with a woman, Meleager insists that she go with them.
