Hot Docs Preview: Interview with Liz Marshall - Director of The Ghost in Our Machine

The Ghosts in Our Machine is an extremely upsetting yet moving film about how we treat animals. It tells the story of Jo-Ann McArthur, a photographer, who has dedicated her life to showing the disturbing treatment of animals. After watching the film, there is no way you will look or thinks about animals the same way again.
