Plot: Modern farms are struggling to keep a secret. Most of the animals used for food in the United States are raised in giant, bizarre factories, hidden deep in remote areas of the countryside. Speciesism: The Movie director Mark Devries set out to investigate. The documentary takes viewers on a sometimes funny, sometimes frightening adventure, crawling through the bushes that hide these factories, flying in airplanes above their toxic manure lagoons, and coming face-to-face with their owners.

A sincere and probing exploration of how the food industry treats non-human animals and how we all treat/consider members of other species.
This movie has an authenticity that makes it very powerful. The narrator seems sincere and we follow his curiosity to places we would not ordinarily see and then to issues we would not ordinarily consider. We travel with him to factory farms and then to question philosophers, academics, and ordinary people about many aspects of THE social justice issue of our time. There are dark moments and funny moments on a journey to learn for ourselves about factory farms and how we as a society treat non-human animals. Specisism is a well-crafted, thoughtful and inspirational documentary. If you eat, you should see it.
Join in a philosophical quest and get answers to questions about specieism
It’s you’re looking for beautiful cinematography shot by an expert filmmaker, then you’re looking for “The Ghosts in Our Machine,” by documentarian Liz Marshall.
Specieism, however, has merits. It’s a thoroughly explored thought experiment, embarked on by philosophy major Mark Devries and friends with cameras.
While Ghosts follows the story of animal rights photographer Jo-Anne McArthur and sees the world in her perspective (that of an animal aware, species inclusive compassionate artist) Specieism is the story of a young man, Devries, arriving at that perspective in a philosophical fashion.
It’s a fascinating logic quest. Devries asks himself one question and then another and another and deeply explores each, seeking insight from some of the greatest thinkers on the topics and also comparing those perspectives to the views of everyday people.
One of the most powerful parts of the film is when Devries travels to North Carolina to talk to residents there about hog farming. He begins by talking to advocates for clean streams. When told that the best way to explore a question is to fly over the farms, Devries gets into a plane. When told that he needs to talk to locals to get the real story, Devries heads out to a home beside one of the farms and talks to the people there about what it is like to live next to a hog farm.
Devries will talk to anyone about anything to get all of his questions answered and, touchingly, to get a human perspective on what it is like to live in constant pain Devries puts his own father on camera to talk about his disability and pain (something Devries said his father has never spoken with him about before).
Devries applies the Socratic method to life and seeks out teachers. There are some great interviews with Ingrid Newkirk of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Paul Shapiro of the Humane Society of the United States, philosopher Peter Singer author of Animal Liberation, and biologist Richard Dawkins. It’s a pity the film quality isn’t better for these.
In contrast, the man on the street interviews serve to highlight that most people have not closely or critically examined their own views about animals.
It’s fabulous to watch Devries’ do so and to join him in his intellectual process. It’s a great quest and, ultimately, provides persuasive, airtight reasoning. I wish I’d seen Specieism the Movie in college.
