Japan’s Wowow Partners With Sundance for ‘Green Porno’

TOKYO – Leading Japanese pay broadcaster Wowow is partnering with Sundance Productions to produce “Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno Live.”
 
The film records Rossellini’s eco-themed stage show, which is based on her popular shorts about animal sexuality. The show is currently on tour in the US, after making the rounds of France, Italy, the UK and Australia.

The director is Jody Shapiro, who also worked on the Green Porno project, while Wowow LA office head Kayo Washio and Sundance Productions president Laura Michalchyshyn are executive producing. Ovation TV has acquired rights for the U.S., Wowow for Japan. Forward Entertainment is selling the docu internationally.
 
“The success of our endeavor is also a manifestation of a new interest in the environment, especially among the younger generations,” Rossellini said in a statement. “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.”
