St. Hilda’s Green Forum presents: The Ghosts in Our Machine

Gibsons filmmaker Liz Marshall explores the question “are non-human animals property to be owned and used, or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?” in her thought-provoking and award-winning documentary The Ghosts in Our Machine. St. Hilda’s Green Forum speaker series presents a special free screening of Marshall’s film, which will take place both in-person and on Zoom. The event will also feature a Q&A with Marshall.

The Ghosts in Our Machine gently reveals one of the most haunting moral dilemmas of our modern world, illuminating the plight of animals rescued from and living within the machine of our modern world, from captive foxes to rescued dairy cows. Marshall directs this powerful documentary through the heart and lens of animal rights photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur.
