With Post-Screening Q&A
DC Abortion Fund is proud to host a special screening of After Tiller at West End Cinema (2301 M St. NW). Space is limited, so click here to get your ticket today – $20 suggested donation with proceeds benefiting DCAF’s work. The theater is by the Foggy Bottom metro, and is wheelchair-accessible.
Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in May 2009, there are four American doctors left who openly provide third-trimester abortions. After Tiller paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians—Dr. LeRoy Carhart, Dr. Warren Hern, Dr. Susan Robinson and Dr. Shelley Sella—who have become the new number-one targets of the anti-abortion movement.
They risk their lives every day to do this work, which they believe is profoundly important for their patients’ lives.Through in-depth interviews with the doctors, as well as intimate verite scenes from their lives and the patients in their clinics, After Tiller also illuminates the experiences and reasons of women who seek later abortions. Rated PG-13.
“Intimate and heartfelt…Brings an emotional clarity to an issue in which every nuanced turn of phrase has been made politically complicated.”
– Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
“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.”
– Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
“After Tiller presents its extremely divisive and controversial subject matter with remarkable sensitivity.”
– Anthony Kaufman, Screen Daily
