After Tiller is a documentary focusing on the controversial subject of third-trimester abortions. Dr. George Tiller was one of its few practitioners in the United States before he was assassinated in 2009. The documentary differentiates itself from ‘issue’ films through its goal to elucidate the subject in a non-reductive manner.

Directors Martha Shane (Bi the Way) and Lana Wilson brought the film to Hot Docs ’13 and joined us at Bar Neon for a discussion of the misunderstood topic, their methodology in tackling the subject and their relationship to the women featured in the film.
