Resistance Radio: Interview of Michael Webber

Michael Webber is a motion picture producer/director who spent much of his early career producing scripted, theatrical films released by studios such as 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate. In 2010, Webber departed from the world of fiction films to pursue his passion project, a ground-breaking cine ma-verite  documentary about the underground exotic pet trade in the US titled, The Elephant in the Living Room. The film would go on to win 5 Best Documentary Awards, earning its place among the top-rated films of the year and releasing as the #1 Independent Film in the US.  Webber was awarded the coveted Genesis Award from the Humane Society of the United States for his contribution to animal welfare in his motion picture work.  He has been featured guest on countless television and radio talk shows, including appearances The Today show, ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly New, and Nightline.  His work was also the subject of an ABC 20/20 special. His most recent documentary is a continuation of his investigative work into exotic animal trafficking in the US, but from an angle that nobody saw coming.  Titled, The Conservation Game, Webber’s new film blows the lid off America’s most beloved television conservationists, exposing their secret connections to the exotic animal trade and their decades long ruse on the American public.  The film started off its world premiere with a bang, winning a Social Justice Award and has movie critics drawing comparisons to Blackfish. According to Variety, the film has recently scored a raft of international film sales and is just now releasing in the US after a limited theatrical run.
