Rossellini, commissioned by Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute to make several short films to address environmental issues, focused on the mating habits of bugs in the well-received “Green Porno” series. In preparation for the second series, which involved sea creatures, she took courses in biology at NYU. Rossellini is a wildlife activist who has been honored by the Audubon Society for her work. She has written three books: Some of Me, Looking at Me, and In the Name of the Father, the Daughter and the Holy Spirits: Remembering Roberto Rossellini. Rossellini is the daughter of the Academy Award-winning Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman and the iconic Italian film director Roberto Rossellini.
