    About the film: "The Ghosts in Our Machine" is a consciousness-raising documentary that gently reveals one of the most haunting moral dilemmas of our modern world that is largely hidden from our view. "Ghosts" illuminates the plight of many other animals rescued from and living within the machine of our modern world, from captive foxes to rescued dairy cows. Through the lens of photojournalist, and film protaganist, Jo-Anne McArthur, audiences become captivated by a cast of non-human animals that the documentary follows.
