Then, you can head uptown to join special guests Liz Marshall, director of The Ghosts in the Machine, Jo-Anne McArthur, photographer and film protagonist, and Susie Coston, Farm Sanctuary’s national shelter director, for a “toast” and meet-and-greet at 10:15 p.m. at Candle 79.

ABOUT THE FILM
The Ghosts in Our Machine delves into a complex social dilemma surrounding animals. In essence, humans have cleverly categorized non-human animals into three classes: domesticated pets, wildlife, and the ones we don’t like to think about. These hidden, exploited animals are the “ghosts in our machine.” The film asks us to consider the question: Why do we value wildlife and our companion animals but not the billions of animals bred and used annually by global industries?
