2013 Berlin International Film Festival
After the success of Green Porno and Seduce me, Isabella ROSSELLINI presents Mammas, her third scientific-comic series about animal life, this time she focuses on maternal instinct. Trough playful portraits of many species, the actress-director challenges preconceived ideas about maternity in general. The contrast between scientific speech and the creative and funny mise-en-scene is definitely a laugh. Very Isabella ROSSELLINI! A model for all the Mammas.
Isabella ROSSELLINI, who has a successful career not only as an actress but also as a director of short films, TV series and movies, webisodes, has produced another series of short films on the motherhood of creatures in nature. She stars herself acting the behavior of birds, fish and insects in funny and hilarious costumes while challenging the ideas of materiality and femininity such as the self-sacrifice, monogamyoriented, altruistic propensity, which are supposed for women to bear ‘naturally’.
