The acclaimed documentary “After Tiller: Furthering the Struggle for Reproductive Rights” intimately explores the highly controversial subject of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the US, all former colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who risk their lives every day in the name of their unwavering commitment toward their patients. The 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. A panel discussion with filmmmaker Martha Shane will follow the screening.
