Movie Info

Also known as This Unnameable Little Broom and Little Songs of the Chief Officer of Hunar Louse (Being a Largely Disguised Reduction of The Epic of Gilgamesh), Tableau II, The Epic of Gilgamesh constitutes an 11 minute surrealist puppet film, conceived and shot by the famed Quay Brothers, Stephen and Timothy. The premise concerns Gilgamesh, a slightly demented, hydrocephalic dwarf boy riding his tricycle around a "sandbox kingdom." He attempts to seduce Enduku, a wild creature who resides in a forest (which actually constitutes a bird skull decorated with an array of exotic, multicolored feathers). Gilgamesh sends a prostitute, then sets a trap comprised of a mound of bloody flesh and a vulva-shaped trapdoor with a mechanical apparatus.
