This short demo was conceived during early "development" in the summer of 2011, shot, edited and directed by Liz Marshall, produced by Nina Beveridge and Liz Marshall, and supported by Canada's documentary channel. It introduces Jo-Anne McArthur, the film's protagonist, alongside a featured animal story: the rescue of Fanny and Sonny from the dairy industry.
THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE was then subsequently commissioned by Canada's documentary channel as a feature length film, by Liz Marshall, featuring photographer Jo-Anne McArthur. It is a cinematic feature length documentary that illuminates the lives of individual animals living within or rescued from the machine of our modern world. Through the heart and photographic lens of animal rights photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur audiences become intimately familiar with a cast of animal characters.
