AFTER TILLER (MFF 2013) awarded the “Best Documentary” Emmy at last night’s News & Documentary Emmys ceremony!
We are thrilled to announce that MFF 2013’s award-winning documentary AFTER TILLER won an Emmy Award for Best Documentary at last night’s News & Documentary Emmys ceremony!
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.
“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.”
