Isabella's birds and the bees
Model, actress, and director Isabella Rossellini has reimagined the timeless tale of 'the birds and the bees' in her award-winning short film series on the sexual behaviors of animals, Green Porno, for the Sundance Channel. Now in its third season, Ms. Rossellini has evolved the shorts to include key challenges facing some of the species that star in each episode. From earthworms and elephant seals to spiders and squid, Ms. Rossellini reenacts sexual strategies of many a species with humor, emotion, and a great sense of wonder for the animal kingdom. Parents...you may want to pre-screen any shorts you want to share with your little ones, though adorable some of the reenactments do justify the term 'porno' in the series title so you may have some explaining to do.
