Being Green

Jess Dobkin

2011, 03:30 minutes, colour, English


A heartfelt and provocative rendition of Kermit the Frog's melancholic "It's Not Easy Being Green," where the artist, in the role of Kermit the Frog, is fisted by a woman in drag in the role of Jim Henson. Together, as human puppet and puppeteer, they lip sync the much loved song. This film is a for-camera version of a performance previously presented to live audiences. For mature audiences.
