We’re thrilled to announce the return of the MFF/WYPR Spotlight Series next Monday 2/10 with a screening of MFF 2013’s award-winning documentary, AFTER TILLER. WYPR 88.1FM’s Sheilah Kast will interview the film’s co-director Martha Shane on stage after the screening, followed by a Q & A with the audience. For an archive of past MFF/WYPR Spotlight Series interviews, click here.
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.
