moral dilemmas of our modern world. The film illuminates the plight of animals living within the machine of our contemporary society, from captive foxes to rescued dairy cows. Award-winning filmmaker Liz Marshall directs this visually arresting documentary through the heart and lens of animal rights photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur. The film follows Jo-Anne over the course of a year as she documents several animal stories in parts of Canada, the U.S. and in Europe. Each story and photograph is a window into global animal industries: Food; Fashion; Entertainment and Biomedical Research. The Ghosts in Our Machine charts McArthur’s efforts to bring wider attention to a topic that most of humankind strives hard to avoid.
