RED BANK: FOR THE GOOD OF THE GHOSTS

Ghosts-1The animal-rights advocacy feature GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE shows in a benefit screening, Thursday evening at Bow Tie Cinemas on White Street.

Although The Ghosts In Our Machine makes a passionate case for ending the suffering of animals worldwide — and the idea that animals are sentient beings, worthy of rights — the documentary has a human protagonist: the photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, whose tireless work for the nonprofit We Animals organization (and the book of the same name) has made her one of the animal kingdom’s most eloquent spokescreatures. The feature-length doc screens at Red Bank’s Bow Tie Cinemas on Thursday night, in a special event that also features a panel talk immediately following the film.

Tickets for the one-time showing are priced at $6, and are available at the theater box office. A portion of proceeds from the August 7 event will be donated to For the Animals Sanctuary in Blairstown.
