More buzz over Isabella Rossellini and GREEN PORNO

The (UK) Guardian is abuzz over Isabella Rossellini’s latest venture into the animal kingdom, a series of videos for Burt’s Bees that chronicle, in gory detail, the fascinating and fragile life of one of our primary pollinators.

The high-drama videos have an explicitly eco message: Protect the bee population, which is in crisis worldwide because of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), by “supporting organic farms that don’t use heavy pesticides; by planting wildflowers, which are the source of their food; and by helping beekeepers by buying local honey.”

Rossellini’s compelling portrayal of the intimate life of animals all started, of course, with the Sundance Channel original web series GREEN PORNO, which The Guardian describes as “bizarre, provocative and often hilarious.” It also calls her portrayals of animals and insects like a praying mantis, a bed bug and a dolphin “the roles she was really born to play.”

We couldn’t agree more.
