This stunning film is unlike any other of its subject matter you’ve ever seen.
Other animal-rights films often simply shock or desensitize with graphic, tragic imagery. While Ghosts In Our Machine does not altogether avoid footage of the disturbing realities that animals used for food, clothing and entertainment face, the filmmaker does an amazing job with balance and juxtaposition. TGIOM, through following the work of photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, exposes cruelty humans put animals through, but you will also meet rescued animals and their human caretakers who would not trade their work for anything in the world.
The cinematography is astoundingly beautiful, and haunting, with a soundtrack to match. The truth that this film brings to the world is that non-human animals are just like us; they feel love, joy, curiosity, and happiness, have friendships, play games, love their family members, and deserve lives free from the abuse, captivity, fear, emotional suffering and physical pain necessitated by industries that use animals. And yet the film is still able to let you decide that for yourself.
Ghosts in Our Machine offers a one-sided perspective on the ethical treatment of animals
Documentaries are designed to educate, and that is the stated purpose of Liz Marshall’s film. Two years in production, Marshall chooses to tell the story of the treatment of animals are through the eyes of activist Jo-Anne McCarthur. McArthur, a self professed animal-lover, beds down with cows, sheep, and pigs in her quest to demonstrate that animals are humans (www.torontopigsave.org). Marshall’s film has a number of problems, but the main one is she became too close to her subject. In the credits, the Vancouver Aquarium is condemned as they refused to be interviewed. Perhaps they figured out in advance that her film was anything but balanced? Marshall also deliberately confuses the issues of animals raised for human consumption versus animal research and factory farms. Temple Grandin, who favours humane slaughter methods, is one of the only talking heads who doesn’t buy McCarthur’s party line “we love all animals”). Marshall is an accomplished film maker, and there can be no excuse for such a one-sided portrayal of a complex issue.
