“I ruled the largest Empire the world has ever seen.”

We hear this confident voice saying, while Assyrian palaces and gardens come into life at the screen.

The British Museum commissioned FGreat to create the trailer for the exhibition “I am Ashurbanipal: king of the world, king of Assyria”.

The spectacular displays available at the museum were used in the film to highlight the mighty figure of Ashurbanipal, a warrior, lion hunter and one of history’s greatest forgotten kings.
