Must Watch: Trailer for Important 'After Tiller' Abortion Documentary
"Unless people understand what's going on for the woman, it's impossible to support it." 2013 happens to be a year full of incredibly moving and important documentaries, from Blackfish to The Act of Killing. Yet another we recommend not only for its thoughtful, intimate filmmaking but for the way it courageously and intelligently approaches a controversial subject is called After Tiller. Co-directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson tell the rousing stories of the four remaining doctors who perform third-trimester abortions after the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in 2009. This affecting doc now has an affecting trailer too - see it below.
Watch the trailer for Martha Shane & Lana Wilson's doc After Tiller, originally via The Daily Beast:
After the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in 2009, there are a limited number of doctors left who provide third-trimester abortions for women. After Tiller moves between the rapidly unfolding stories of the doctors, all of whom were close colleagues of Dr. Tiller, and are fighting to keep this service available in the wake of his death. These four people have become the new #1 targets of the pro-life movement, yet continue to risk their lives every day to do work that many believe is murder, but which they believe is profoundly important for their patients' lives. After Tiller premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won the Human Rights award at the Full Frame Film Festival. Oscilloscope Labs will release After Tiller this fall.
