After Tiller

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 exploration of one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they’ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.


"The most compelling and important documentary of the year. A profoundly moving and genuinely inspiring piece of cinema (that is a crucial contribution to the conversation on abortion rights)" - FILMMAKER MAGAZINE

"Whether one is pro-life, pro-choice, or without an opinion on the issue, AFTER TILLER provides personal insight into a heart-wrenching, complex reality." - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
