The Ghosts in Our Machine
directed by Liz Marshall starring Jo-Anne McArthur, Jonathan Balcombe, Gieri Bolliger in English
The Ghosts in Our Machine is a powerful documentary that brings to light the lives of animals living within and rescued from the machine of our modern world. Through the eyes of the camera of acclaimed photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, we become familiar with her animal subjects.
Each story and photograph is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment, and Research. As part of an epic photo project called We Animals, McArthur has documented the lives of animals around the world with heartbreaking empathic vividness.
The Ghosts in Our Machine charts McArthur’s efforts to bring wider attention to a topic that most of humankind strives hard to avoid. Are non-human animals property to be owned and used, or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?
A film whose sense of urgency and purpose is utterly engrossing.
