Rossellini’s Green porno


My good friend Isabella Rossellini (that’s a lie for starters, I heard her speak at the BFI, and spoke to her briefly when she signed a copy of her book for me) is bringing out eight short films for Mobile phones, called “Green Porno”. Wired spoke to the director, Jody Shapiro, who says that the name Green Porno is designed to get more traffic. The Wired article is interesting, but if you want to see a bit of what it looks like, der Spiegel has a few stills from the film. She has some interesting insights into the intimacy of mobile devices, and film-making in the BBC clip above.

There will be more artists making work for this small canvas, and I think this is a very exciting landmark!

So a beautiful crazy sexy fly played by Isabella? . . .

In each episode, Rossellini assumes the role of the male insect. “Seeing Isabella Rossellini mount a housefly from behind while smiling at the camera,” Shapiro remarked, “I can’t imagine many people would have ever thought they’d see that.”
