Storyboard Text

  • There once was a king named Gilgamesh who was selfish and alone.
  • I'm the most powerful person in the land.
  • You're not my husband!
  • He liked to exercise his kingly powers, and over slept with the wives of all his subjects.
  • Enkidu was 1/2 man, 1/2 animal. He disagreed with Gilgamesh's actions. He went to meet him and they fought, until they saw themselves in the other.
  • The two became great friends, almost like brothers to each other.
  • This is a bad idea.  All the animals avoid the Cedar Forest.
  • Come on, it will be fine!
  • Gilgamesh had one tragic flaw. He could not stand for someone to be more powerful than him. Reluctantly he convinced Enkidu to come kill Humbaba with him.
  • Enkidu went with Gilgamesh but was further injured in the fight. Gilgamesh killed Humbaba, and for a short time, felt victorious.
