The Ghosts in Our Machine | 2013
This documentary focuses on the lives of individual animals living within and rescued from the machine of our modern world. Each story and photograph is a window into global animal industries: food, fashion, entertainment and research. The director has documented the lives of animals around the world with heart-breaking empathic vividness in an effort to bring wider attention to a topic that most of humankind strives hard to avoid. Are non-human animals property to be owned and used, or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?
