Rossellini Gets Freaky in Green Porno

If you ever wondered how dragonflies mate, let Isabella Rossellini demonstrate in her online series Green Porno, which went live this week.

Each episode shows Rossellini dressed in a different lo-fi (yet elaborate) bug costume to show how they have sex. It’s not freaky because it’s about animals doin’ it, but because the straightforward, clinical manner in which Rossellini speaks, combined with her pronunciation, makes words like “vagina” and “penis” haunting. Especially since she’s dressed like a giant fly mounting another fly.

The videos are almost like a Sweded version of Wild Kingdom, or Planet Earth. The production value is all elementary school play, but the content is pure science. Who knew all you needed was two minutes to learn how the birds and the, well, bees (which lose their “members” after mating) do it? There are eight episodes in total, including spiders, snails, earthworms and more.

The series was shot with mobile phones in mind (our previous coverage). In the press materials for Green Porno, Rossellini shows how savvy she is:

“We looked at a lot of films on different cellular phones, and what looked best were animations, because they’re very contrast-y. If the screen is too crowded, you tend to lose things.”

Green Porno is playful and serious at the same time, which makes it captivating. Watch one and you’ll want to watch them all. Then you’ll never want to go into your backyard again.
