THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE is a multi-award winning consciousness raising documentary that gently reveals one of the most haunting moral dilemmas of our modern world. While the provocative film BLACKFISH made waves for exposing the consequences of keeping orcas in captivity, GHOSTS illuminates the plight of many other animals rescued from and living within the machine of our modern world, from captive foxes to rescued dairy cows.

Award-winning filmmaker Liz Marshall directs this visually arresting documentary through the heart and lens of 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.
