I was fortunate enough to screen Liz Marshall’s incredible award-winning film, The Ghosts In Our Machine, at Hot Docs this past spring, but it is now finding new life in theatres, and I must highly encourage anyone and everyone to see this documentary if the chance should ever arrive. Thanks in no small part to the support the film has been receiving from IndieCan since its world premiere at Hot Docs, this week will see it returning to the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre for three very special screenings, beginning tonight:
July 2 | 6:30PM: The Power of the Image – A Focus on protagonist Jo-Anne McArthur’s Photography.
Moderated by Marc Glassman (Director, This Is Not A Reading Series (TINARS),& Pages beyond Bricks and Mortar Editor, POV Magazine & Montage Magazine Film Critic, Classical 96.3 FM). Filmmaker Liz Marshall and protagonist Jo-Anne McArthur will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film.
July 3 | 9:00PM: Animal Sentience and Animal Law. Dr. Kerry Bowman, Bioethicist, Conservationist, and President of the Canadian Ape Alliance, will introduce the film. A thoughtful discussion will follow the film with special guest Nick Wright, Executive Director of Animal Justice Canada. Filmmaker Liz Marshall and protagonist Jo-Anne McArthur will be in attendance.
July 4 | 3:30PM: Filmmaker Liz Marshall and protagonist Jo-Anne McArthur will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film, with Special Guests.
Again, I must highly recommend getting out to one of the screenings mentioned above if at all possible. And spread the word. This is an important film that is not to be missed!
