USA, 2013, 85 Minute Running Time
ONE NIGHT ONLY! Monday, May 19th at 7pm
After Tiller intimately explores the highly controversial subject of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of practitioner Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the United States, all former colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who risk their lives every day in the name of their unwavering commitment toward their patients. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique look at one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they’ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.
Official selection of over a dozen film festival including: Sundance, HOTDOCS, Seattle, San Francisco, True/False, AFI Docs and Full Frame.
"Regardless of your feelings on the subject, After Tiller makes the dedication of these physicians evident.... The directors provide us intimate access to their clinics, homes and family lives, showing us the tears of sympathy they shed with despondent women as well as the ethical struggles they face. These are physicians who care dearly for their patients and view their practice as a noble and necessary calling."- RogerEbert.Com
