I did not know that dinosaurs matedededded.... Green Porno with Isabella Rossellini

"Her American film debut was in David Lynch’s haunting and controversial Blue Velvet. She was last seen starring in the short film directed by Guy Maddin, My Dad is 100 Years Old. Isabella is the daughter of Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman. Isabella wrote, directed and stars in a series of shorts called Green Porno about the reproducing habits of various bugs and insects. The shorts are a comical, but insightful study of the curious ways certain bugs “make love” featuring Isabella in colorful, vibrant costumes. Isabella is very involved in Wildlife Conservation. She is also a volunteer for the Guide Dog Foundation and trains puppies for their program. Rossellini lives in New York City with her two children." -- Harper Studio

Isabella Rossellini's Green Porno
is one of the strangest - and yet most creative *and artistic ways of talking about the ever so uncomfortable subject - how animals mate. Which I'm surprised it hasn't been done before! Every species has strange and very unique ways of mating. I remember in biology class often thinking "wouldn't there be an easier way of doing this?" - hence why nature favored a-sexual reproduction for quite some time, and it probably would have stayed that way - if it wasn't for that wonderful need for genetic diversity. The more diverse a population - the healthier they are.
