The Elephant In The Living Room

The Elephant In The Living Room

Film

By  T.T. Stern-Enzi

Local filmmaker Michael Webber returns to the region a conquering hero from the festival circuit, having seized Best Documentary prizes from the Michael Moore-sponsored Traverse City Film Festival and the Sedona International Film Festival as well as the ACE Award from Silver Docs/AFI/Discovery. His acclaimed documentary The Elephant in the Living Room, which kicks off its nationwide rollout this weekend in downtown Dayton at the Neon Movies (130 E. Fifth St.), introduces us to Tim Harrison, a police officer, firefighter, and paramedic committed to protecting both exotic pets and the public and Terry Brumfield, a private citizen fighting for the right to keep two African lions he has sheltered since they were cubs. The story, which Webber skillfully brings to the big screen, is obviously too big to ignore. The film will arrive at the Little Art Theatre (247 Xenia Ave., Yellow Springs) beginning October 8.
