Green Porno: A Book and Short Films

By Isabella Rossellini
Non-Fiction, 2nd floor, 591.562 Rossellini
 
Based on a series of short environmental films created by Isabella Rossellini, Green Porno is both ridiculous and seductive. In a series of short vignettes that use puppetry and Rossellini's own body, Green Porno describes the bizarre yet totally real sexual practices of seven marine animals. The book provides the opportunity for a closer look at Rossellini's homemade costumes and to contemplate the simplicity of her prose; the short films are collected on an accompanying DVD. It is not only my rabbit's proclivities that lead me to recommend this book, it's truly an excellent artistic work.
