Art-house luminary Isabella Rossellini reveals the surprisingly kinky and confounding mating rituals of insects and marine life in this one-woman show, adapted from the celebrated Sundance Channel series of the same name. With day-glo costumes and paper puppets, Rossellini channels a host of reproductive oddities based on a text by the influential French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière (The Mahabharata, 1987 Next Wave; The Tin Drum). Part nature documentary, part DIY cartoon, Green Porno is a cheeky, delightful zoology lesson brought vividly to life by Rossellini’s singular flair for storytelling.
