THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE
Seattle Film Premiere and Q&A with Director Liz Marshall
When: Saturday, March 22nd, 2:00 - 4:30pm
Where: Stimpson Auditorium @ The Seattle Asian Art Museum (1400 E Prospect Street, Seattle, WA 98112)

THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE is a multi-award-winning, consciousness-raising documentary that gently reveals one of the most haunting moral dilemmas of our modern world. While the provocative film BLACKFISH made waves for exposing the consequences of keeping orcas in captivity, GHOSTS illuminates the plight of many other animals rescued from and living within the machine of our modern world, from captive foxes to cows rescued from the dairy industry.
Award-winning filmmaker Liz Marshall directed this visually arresting documentary through the heart and lens of photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur. The film follows Jo-Anne over the course of a year as she documents several animal stories in parts of Canada, the U.S., and in Europe. Each story and photograph is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment, and Biomedical Research.
We look forward to seeing you there, and please invite friends and family to share in this powerful film experience!

When I saw this girl pop up on my screen, I felt nothing but sadness, and shame for humanity.
To treat a living soul like this, like a machine, for reasons unnecessary…. I don’t even know what to say. Usually I write a frigging essay on posts like this, but I think pictures speak for themselves.
Miraculously she survived this. Because deep down, despite the abuse, the neglect and the exploitation she faced, when activists liberated her and 63 other hens, she found a will to live.
The above is a crude translation by google, from Dutch to English, so please forgive the fragmented sentences.
However, as clearly stated several times, these hens were rescued from a ‘free range’ farm.
Please, for the sake of these innocent animals, do not believe the lies. I have already posted information on ‘Free Range Myths’ here, where I exposed Happy Eggs (the UK’s ‘most famous’ free range company) for their abusive practices.
Please understand that free-range brands don’t mean ‘humane’ or ‘ethical’.
I wish to spread this not to push some ‘vegan agenda’ but to actually point out to well-meaning people who choose cage free/free range eggs, that they are still supporting abuse. Thank you.
this is so horrible it hurts. this is why I’m a vegetarian. i do not wish to take part in hurting animals. i only want to help
animals are not ours to torture, eat, or harm
If you’re vegetarian, you’re still supporting animal exploitation and oppression. Animals have their own purposes in life just as we do. Go vegan.
I don’t know why, but it seems like there are an awful lot of people on tumblr who see reasons to avoid consuming eggs and say “that’s why I’m vegetarian”.
Am I just getting old? Does vegetarian mean something different to “the young folk” than it does to the rest of us? Last I checked, most vegetarians bought and ate eggs, as well as dairy, and usually honey. (And many, though they won’t admit it, freely buy products tested on animals).
