“THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE brings to light the haunting ways the ‘machine’ of our modern world transforms sentient beings, suffering by the billions in the shadows on factory farms, in laboratories, and in the fur industry and other abusive industries, into mere specters.

“This woman, Jo-Anne McArthur, has combined two things that are Hallmarks of my life: Art and valuing all life. To simply be a witness to beings surviving invisible lives is heroic. I think all of us know what it is like to be minimized, to be ignored, and to suffer [...]

“This is a masterful film.  It should be essential viewing for everyone.  Jo-Anne McArthur is an extremely engaging subject.  And I was particularly blown away by her photographs which are so poignant and evocative, they’re almost a character unto themselves.  We’re not just looking at pictures of exploited animals – [...]

“Liz Marshall’s upcoming film THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE delves into an issue that is close to our hearts.  As farm animal cruelty investigators we see these suffering ghosts on every investigation. There exist many levels of ghosts in our machine – from the 650 million “food” animals born and killed [...]

“It’s my honor and pleasure to support THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE. I am an admirer of Liz Marshall’s film work, and a staunch supporter of efforts to enlighten humanity to the stark disconnect between our dismal treatment of animals as a whole, and what we now understand about animals’ [...]

“It is a simple fact that other animals are made of flesh, blood, and bone-just like we are.
