This special is the portrait of an artist as she prepares for performances in different cities all over the world.  It is the evolution of Isabella’s incredibly original Green Pornos from shorts to stage to documentary.  We will follow her internationally, meet her fans, see how she prepares her costumes, works on the dialogue, and deals with the tech and logistical issues – all of which she controls. From cobble stone Piazzas, to small or large theatres to outdoor forums in Rome, viewers see her adapt to each location, the preparation leading up to the shows and her amazing fan base that comes out no matter how obscure the venue.

Green Porno Live touches on all of this and makes one wonder about “us” and our diversity. In a combination of costume changes, rear screen projection, puppetry and cheeky, comedic dialogue, Isabella teaches viewers about the extraordinary and always evolving world of the animal kingdom.

“The success of our endeavor is also a manifestation of a new interest in the environment, especially among the younger generations. I chose humor as my expression because  many taboos  or  difficult  subject matters such as environmental problems or sex and gender definitions are easier to address if we approach it with humor,” Ms. Rossellini adds.  “Besides I love to laugh.  It’s my favorite thing in the world and I am an entertainer”.

WOWOW retains Japanese rights to Green Porno Live, while U.S. rights are with Ovation TV. A 2015 broadcast date will be announced in the upcoming months. International sales company Forward Entertainment has also come on board.
