With Isabella Rossellini
“I’ve always loved animals”, says Isabella Rossellini. “Biodiversity fascinated me”. The daughter of Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman would go on to become David Lynch’s high priestess and a model, but she never lost her interest in biology which became her main source of inspiration. Encouraged by actor-filmmaker Robert Redford who is tremendously supportive of experimental, independent films and also very interested in Nature, she made short comical films about animals: Green Porno. Then the great Jean-Claude Carrière, who has also worked with Peter Brook, wrote the theatrical comical version about her series. So prepare to enjoy a fresh and humorous monologue on the animal sexuality!
