Capitalizing On "Green" + "Porno"


Sorry to all you horny treehuggers, but the newest hot "Green Porno" film is not actually the kind of porn that 1 out of every 3 men are addicted to. This one is about bugs, to be specific it is about Director, Producer, Actress, Artist Isabella Rossellini dressing up like various bug species and having sex with fake bugs made of paper. They completely capitalized on the two hottest search words on google "green" + "porno" in order to quickly spread the buzz word on their series of short films. Whether this film will actually get ya hot & bothered is yet to be seen, but I have to say watching a real nature film about bug sex has always been fun... so maybe an avante guard one will be too!
"Green Porno is a series of very short films conceived, written, co-directed by and featuring Isabella Rossellini about the sex life of bugs, insects and various creatures. The films are a comical but insightful study of the curious ways certain bugs “make love”. “Green” echoes the ecological movement of today and our interest in nature, and “Porno” alludes to the racy ways bugs, insects and other creatures have sex, if human, these acts would not be allowed to be screened or air on television, considered instead as most filthy and obscene.

Each film is executed in a very simple childlike manner. They are a playful mixture of real world and cartoon. Each episode begins with Isabella speaking to the camera “ If I were a…(firefly, spider, dragonfly etc.). She then transforms into the male of the species explaining in a simple yet direct dialogue the actual act of species-specific fornication. The costumes, colorful sets and backdrops as well as the female insects contribute to the playfulness of the films. The contrast of this “naïf” expression and filthy sex practices adds to the comicality of Green Porno.
Green Porno is an experiment specifically conceived with the third screen, namely cellular screens, computers and ipods."

There is no official website yet, and I have only found interviews rather then videos. If any of ya'll find the actual "Green Porno" videos online, please link to it in the comments section here.
