Editorial Reviews for this title:
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.

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.

Isabella has committed to promoting the book at the time of publication.
