Publishers Description

"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.

The true nature of wild animal sex!  Jan 16, 2010
You will most likely not find any other book and video that contains words such as penis, vagina, anus, and all other body parts of the animal's sexual and asexual reproduction that will be suitable for kids of all ages as Isabella Rossellini's //Green Porno//. Nor will you probably find a book or video that deals with decidedly deviant, shockingly scandalous, and unapologetically animalistic activities and behavior.

If you are repelled by this idea--of showing your kids how the bee, the earthworm, the snail, the spider, the fly, the shrimp, the barnacle, the limpet, the starfish, the anglerfish, the anchovy, the squid, and other such animals have sex, then Rossellini's book with the companion video is not for your kids, and not for you.

But, if you want a magnificently fun way of showing your kids (or even the kid in you) the scientifically accurate and honest-to-goodness stories about how animals have sex, then your search stops here. In //Green Porno//, this book and directorial debut by Rossellini (who is the daughter of actress Ingrid Bergman and filmmaker Roberto Rossellini), the animal's sex stories are told with a fantastic sense of humor and fantasy.

Review of Green Prono  Oct 31, 2009
I had seen the author interviewed on television, so knew about her very creative work. The pictures in the book showing her costumns for the teaching aspect are super. Her work is delightful, funny, shocking and colorful all at once. The choice of color is great and descriptions really cannot do the book justice. L Holt
