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 idea what was in store. The overwhelming success of the shorts led Sundance to commission a second Green Por series which is to focus on marine animals: shrimp, squid seals etc. (The first series focused primarily on insects). Provocative, hilarious, and truly one of a kind, Green Por 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.
Isabella graced the covers of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Vanity Fair, becoming one of the most iconic models of the 1980s. Her acting career includes such films as David Lynch's Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart, Campbell Scott and Stanley Tucci's Big Night, Peter Weir's Fearless, and The Saddest Music in the World directed by Guy Maddin. Isabella wrote the script to My Dad is 100 Years Old, also directed by Guy Maddin, an homage to her father, the filmmaker Roberto Rossellini, and her mother, Ingrid Bergman. Green Porno is Isabella's directorial debut. She lives in New York City.
