We are thrilled to announce that MFF 2013’s award-winning documentary AFTER TILLER will have its broadcast premiere on PBS’s acclaimed POV documentary series this Monday, September 1st!
Directed by Martha Shane and Lana Wilson, 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.
Martha Shane is a Baltimore County native and was co-host of this year’s Filmmakers Taking Charge conference at the 2014 Maryland Film Festival. Click here to listen to the MFF/WYPR Spotlight Seriespodcast of Martha Shane discussing AFTER TILLER with Sheilah Kast on WYPR’s Maryland Morning.
AFTER TILLER does viewers the great service of providing light where there’s usually only heat, giving a human face and heart to what previously might have been an abstract issue or quickly scanned news item.
