Bug Eyed: Green Porno directed by Isabella Rossellini and Jody Shapiro

by Robert Enright

Border Crossings, Feb. 2008, v. 27, no. 105, pp. 26-27

The human interest in insects is at the heart of Robert Enright's article on the recent film of Isabella Rossallini entitled Green Porno. Rossallini's project is a series of eight shorts focusing on the sex lives of insects. Rossallini is both the creator and manifestation of the inscects. She also directed three of the shorts, and Jody Sahpiro directed the final five. The films were commissioned by the Sundance Channel. Each short is under two minutes and the viewer can expect to experience many buggy copulations, including sado-masochism, soixante-neuf and hermaphrodism.
