The creators behind The Ghosts in Our Machine will offer a presentation at the University of Northern Colorado Tuesday, March 25, and attend the screening of their critically acclaimed documentary on Thursday, March 27.
Photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur will present We Animals at 6 p.m. in the Columbine B room at the University Center, 2101 10th Ave. Copies of her book, We Animals, will be available for purchase, and McArthur will be there for book signing after her presentation.
She and filmmaker and director Liz Marshall will also attend the screening Thursday and answer audience questions following the 7 p.m. showing of their film about the treatment of non-human animals at Lindou Auditorium in Michener Library, 1400 22nd St. The documentary will also be screened at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, in Lindou (Marshall and McArthur will not be present for Wednesday's viewing.)

The Ghosts in Our Machine is an award-winning documentary that addresses a modern-day moral dilemma of whether "non-human animals are property to be owned or used or sentient beings deserving of rights."
The programming at UNC is sponsored by the Youth for Environmental Sustainability. It's also part of UNC's International Film Series. For information on the film visit http://www.unco.edu/ifs/spring_2014_films/ghosts_machine.html
