THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE illuminates the lives of individual animals living within and rescued from the machine of our modern world. Through the heart and photographic lens of animal rights photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur, audiences become intimately familiar with a cast of non-human animals. From undercover investigations to joyful rescue missions, in North America and in Europe, each photograph and story is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment and 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.Written by
There's a profound and stark beauty to this movie, despite the horror of its subject matter.
I saw this at the Melbourne premier in 2014 and was truly mesmerized. The most important movie of it's kind because it can reach across the divide of activists to the general film goer who simply appreciates a well-made documentary and indeed a thriller of a story line. Jo-Anne makes a most sympathetic yet clearly reluctant heroine, my heart ached for her and what she is compelled to do to make the world a better, more just place. A war correspondent indeed.
I cannot rate this documentary highly enough. In short, I think it's stunning and should reach a much broader audience than it does.
