Mammas (9 x shorts) – After showing the world the unconventional mating and scandalous sex lives of animals in her Webby-award winning, internationally acclaimed short film series Green Porno and Seduce Me, Isabella Rossellini returns to Sundance Channel and sets her provocative lens on creatures’ rites of passage into motherhood in her latest series.
Featuring fantastical costumes and weirdly delightful enactments, the actress writes, directs and slips into the role of animal mother, playing non-traditional creatures and the different ways their maternal instinct is put into action in nature. From cuckoos who willingly hand their young to another mother to fiercely loving wasps who bury animals alive for baby food, Isabella’s entertaining and educational portrayals will show varying ways mothers provide for their offspring.
