9780061791062: Green Porno: A Book and Short Films by Isabella Rossellini
Review:

Deep down in the ocean, strange things happen, acts of love that are unfamiliar to the human eye: Anchovies mate in large orgies; shrimp strip down to get in the mood; starfish can do it two different ways; whales fight to make love.

Inspired by the wonderfully odd and humorous short films created by Isabella Rossellini and released on DVD for the first time, Green Porno offers a visually arresting and scientifically accurate look at the sex lives of marine animals and other creatures. This book will make you see the animal kingdom as you never have before.

A Look Inside Green Porno (Click on Images to Enlarge)

As a shrimp, Isabella peels off her outer layer to molt. Anglerfish attract their prey with a luminous lure. A moment of passion between two squid.

About the Author:

Isabella graced the covers of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Vanity Fair, becoming one of the most iconic models of the 1980s. Her acting career includes such films as David Lynch's Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart, Campbell Scott and Stanley Tucci's Big Night, Peter Weir's Fearless, and The Saddest Music in the World directed by Guy Maddin. Isabella wrote the script to My Dad is 100 Years Old, also directed by Guy Maddin, an homage to her father, the filmmaker Roberto Rossellini, and her mother, Ingrid Bergman. Green Porno is Isabella's directorial debut. She lives in New York City.

Book Description HarperCollins, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "I was always fascinated by the infinite' strange and scandalous ways that insects copulate." Isabella Rossellini When Isabella Rossellini and The Sundance Channel set out to make a series of short films for the internet about the sex lives of animals' they had no idea what was in store. GREEN PORNO' the colorful' indescribable' wonderfully odd shorts became a sensation on the internet' receiving over 1.3 million views and major national publicity including CNN' David Letterman' The New York Times Magazine' Wired and the Wall Street Journal. The overwhelming success of the shorts led Sundance to commission a second GREEN PORNO series which is to focus on marine animals: shrimp' squid seals etc. (The first series focused primarily on insects) Codirector Jody Shapiro has taken 125 arresting film stills of Isabella dressed in animal costumes which are the centerpiece of the book' along with narrative text describing the "love making" process of each animal. Each chapter will also include a quirky' freakonomics style onesheet that includes surprising facts about each species. GREEN PORNO also includes a DVD of both GREEN PORNO series which are not available for sale elsewhere. Provocative' hilarious' and truly one of a kind' GREEN PORNO is a great giftfor readers of Michael Pollan and fans of independent film alike. Isabella has committed to promoting the book at the time of publication. Praise for GREEN PORNO FILMS "Shocking' whimsical' entertaining"Shine "[Rossellini] plays the male of each species in splendidly kitschy homemade costumes' while explaining the procedures in a humorous running commentary" Telegraph "Bright colors' goofy leotardbased costumes' undulating foam rubberits hot stuff."Playboy "Magical" The Flog "Rossellinis subjects carry the weight of a fierce' natural morality." Border Crossings "A funny and insightful study of the curious ways various bugs "make love." Hot Docs 2008 "Rossellini has really done the unexpected" The Auteurs.
