Straight from the Neon Movies press release:
Here’s more great news. On Oct. 1, we will begin a one-week run of THE ELEPHANT IN THE LIVING ROOM. “The Elephant in the Living Room is an award-winning documentary about the controversial world of raising the deadliest and most exotic animals on earth as common household pets. The story follows the journey of two men at the heart of the issue. One, Tim Harrison, an Ohio police officer whose mission is to protect exotic animals and the public, and the other, Terry Brumfield, a big-hearted man who struggles to keep two pet African lions that he loves like his own family.
Since its premiere in Dayton earlier this year, the movie has been playing to sold-out crowds all over the country. It has been selected by no less than fifteen film festivals from New York to Chicago to Los Angeles and winning three BEST DOCUMENTARY awards, including one from Academy Award winning director Michael Moore who called the film ‘One of the scariest, most entertaining and technically perfect documentaries.’ ” (taken from press notes)
You think it’s bad when the neighbor has a rooster? How about a bear or a lion (or two)?
My friend Mike Webber- who is an incredible film-maker right here in Dayton, made this documentary about Oakwood Police Officer Tim Harrison- who specializes in dealing with exotic house pets.
I wrote about it when Mike hosted the free showing at the Schuster. If you didn’t catch it then- go see it. If you saw it- go see it again or send your friends. Besides supporting a local film maker and our only independent movie house- it’s a great film.
