Animals are hidden in the shadows of our highly mechanized world. THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE is a cinematic cross-platform documentary that illuminates the lives of individual animals living within and rescued from the machine of our modern world. Through the heart and lens of Jo-Anne McArthur we become intimately familiar with a cast of animal characters. Are non-human animals property to be owned and used, or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?
Through the heart and photographic lens of international photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, we become intimately familiar with a cast of non-human animals. The film follows Jo-Anne over the course of a year as she photographs several animal stories in parts of Canada, the U.S. and in Europe. Each story is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment and Research.
