The Elephant in the Room

Emotionally Charged and Unforgettable... A Magnificent Documentary Film on the Provocative Topic of Exotic Pets. 

Praised by critics as one of the best films of the year, director Michael Webber takes viewers deep inside the controversial subculture of raising the most dangerous animals in the world as common household pets.

Set against the backdrop of a heated national debate, director Michael Webber chronicles the extraordinary journey of two men at the heart of the issue – Tim Harrison, a police officer whose friend was killed by an exotic pet; and Terry Brumfield, a big-hearted man who struggles to raise two pet African lions.

"An exceptionally compassionate, fair-minded film. This topic could easily have been sensationalized as reality TV, but Webber takes the high road, honoring the sanctity of all life while focusing his film on an intimately human scale." - Seattle Times
