No animation here, but a new way with documentary story-telling which we feel sure you’ll want to see!
Five years ago, the most iconic of David Lynch’s heroines, Isabella Rossellini, went from ‘Blue Velvet’ to ‘Green Porno.’ The actress and student of biology took on the characters of a mantis, a dolphin, a bedbug, a snail and many more, all for the purpose of enhancing our knowledge on the sex lives of animals.
These educational, experimental videos see Rossellini in full species costume, puppeteering her cardboard mates, whilst providing thoroughly researched narrative in her sultry accent.
Rossellini recently gave an interview for the Independent to discuss a new series for 2013, ‘Mamas’. This time she’s exploring maternal instincts in the animal kingdom.
For those who missed the online series (if you’re past the PG age) I’d recommend watching all of the ‘Green Porno’ videos.
In North America you can view them and lots more info on the Sundance Channel website http://www.sundancechannel.com/series/greenporno/
Elsewhere you’ll need to watch on Youtube:
Also available on iTunes for $9.99.
You’ll never look at an earthworm in the same way again.
