©2015 TIFF

Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno Live! —a documentary that follows Italian actress and director Isabella Rossellini was screened on October 29 as part of the Panorama section of the 28th Tokyo International Film Festival. Norika Fujiwara took a role of a voice actress for the Japanese dubbed version attended TOHO CINEMAS Roppongi Hills for the “greetings from the stage”.
The documentary captures Rossellini’s rare talent, incorporating the production process and interviews with Rossellini about “Green Porno” —a short film series in which the costumed Rossellini performs many different animals and explains their mating behavior. Fujiwara who performs the voices for Rossellini’s narration and the voices of the animals says that “when you are living in the world of humans, you think that we are the most advanced but the reproductive functions of animals are surprisingly advanced. I made many different discoveries and I am overjoyed that I was able to be involved in this work.” she said with a smile.
She also gave the highest respect to Rossellini who gives constant pursuit to the building blocks of life, saying “before I knew it, I have been standing for 11 hours straight and when I was finished, I felt like a shell.” she said reflecting on a spirited dubbing scene. She also referred to the scenes of the animals mating. “I was able to try the voices of many different animals, by taking in their feelings. Aphids, bears and snakes —I performed with the emotion of those animals and I hope that Rossellini’s intentions had come through.” she addressed the crowd with sincerity.
She spoke with fervor about the secret of life after the “greetings from the stage” on-the-spot interview by surrounding reporters using the catch phrase from the documentary for spiders -Sex means risking their lives. Giving an example of mating in spiders “the female spider is bigger. When the male approaches her thinking he is going to mate, sometimes he will be eaten by the female who thinks he is a fly. He approaches risking his life, so as soon as the mating is finished he escapes. This is really interesting and informative”, she said and “humans are classified as males and females but there are a lot of animals and insects that they seem to have no gender differences. I have been shown to a world in which there is a diversity of living things.” she said with an enraptured expression on her face.
Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno Live! will be broadcast on November 7 at WOWOW.
