The Ghosts in Our Machine is a documentary film that explores the ethical and moral implications of animal exploitation in modern society. The film is directed by Liz Marshall, a Canadian filmmaker, and was released in 2013.

The documentary follows the journey of photographer and animal activist Jo-Anne McArthur as she documents the lives of animals in captivity and their mistreatment at the hands of humans. The film highlights the plight of animals that are used for food, clothing, entertainment, and experimentation, and the toll that it takes on their physical and emotional well-being.

Throughout the film, McArthur travels to various locations, including a factory farm, a fur farm, an animal sanctuary, and a laboratory where animals are used for experiments. The footage that she captures sheds light on the suffering that animals endure at the hands of humans.

One of the most powerful aspects of the film is its ability to convey the complex emotional lives of animals. Through McArthur's photography, viewers are able to see the fear, pain, and suffering that animals experience, as well as their capacity for joy, love, and companionship. The film also explores the impact that animal exploitation has on human beings, both in terms of our health and our moral values.

The Ghosts in Our Machine is not an easy film to watch. It confronts viewers with uncomfortable truths about the ways in which we use and abuse animals, and it challenges us to consider our own complicity in this system.
