Join the West Kootenay EcoSociety at the Civic Theatre on Wednesday (October) 1 at 7:30 p.m. for an amazing and thought-provoking film about animal rights and our relationship with the animal world.

The Ghosts in Our Machine is a multi-award winning 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 rescued dairy cows.

Award-winning filmmaker Liz Marshall directs 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.

Liz Marshall is a multi-award winning filmmaker (Director, Writer, and Producer) and a cross-platform creator who fuses character-driven cinematic storytelling with social and environmental justice issues. Ms. Marshall will be on hand in Nelson for a discussion of the film after the screening.

Tickets are $10 for the general public or $8 for students, seniors, and EcoSociety members.

The proceeds of this film will go to the West Kootenay EcoSociety which is a non-profit organization located in Nelson BC.
