The Ghosts in Our Machine

Over the course of a year, award-winning director Liz Marshall follows acclaimed animal photographer Jo-Anne McArthur as she photographs several animal stories in parts of Canada, the United States and in Europe.

Each story is a window into global animal industries: food, fashion, entertainment and research. All part of an epic photo project called We Animals, now in its 15th year and shot around the globe, McArthur has documented the lives of animals with heart-breaking empathic vividness and professionalism. With the exception of our companion animals and a few wild and stray species within our urban environments, we experience animals daily only as the food, clothing, animal-tested goods and entertainment we make of them. This moral dilemma is often hidden from our view, and most consumers are complicit. The Ghosts in Our Machine asks whether animals are property, to be owned and used, or sentient beings deserving of rights.
