Isabella Rossellini talked about Green Porno on the show. The Grahame Norton Show, 21 May, 2009 <BR> ---
Présentation de l'éditeur
"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)
Co−director 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 one−sheet 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 gift−−for readers of Michael Pollan and fans of independent film alike. Isabella has committed to promoting the book at the time of publication.

Although the DVD is toted as an additional feature of the book, I consider the writings secondary to the short films themselves. The stills, however, further fuel the argument that Isabella could land a Lancôme contract even at her current age. In any event, "Green Porno" is a true erotic education from earthworm to whale, and one would be amiss to overlook the sexual artistry.
Since you're still with me, this offers a charming introduction to a few species, familiar and unfamiliar. The presentation involves simple puppetry (often just paper cutouts), and even simpler costuming. Each of the book's sections take just a few pages, reflecting the few-minute format of each video it represents. There's a bit of eco-message in some of these piece, but not many, and not nearly as shrill as one might fear. Mostly, it just delights in the wonderful lives of our fellow beings, and in how their lives differ so very much from our own. And, within the limits of the format, this presents some good, solid science. My only regret in Rossellini's presentation is that there aren't more of her with more different interests.
As much as I like this book, it's just a shadow of Rossellini's videos. They're available on-line (and in the book's enclosed DVD), and are truly charming.Highly recommended for anyone, especially with kids, as long as everyone's comfortable with the boy-girl thing.
