East End Film Festival: After Tiller

Martha Lane and Lana Wilson’s documentary After Tiller focuses entirely on third-trimester abortions, those undertaken after the twenty first week of pregnancy, or more specifically the doctors (there are only four) who offer these late period abortions and the toll such a procedure has on them. For a look at the whole spectrum of the abortion debate, go to Tony Kayes expansive, balanced and troubling 2006 documentary Lakes of Fire (yes, he did something after American History X, something much better,) as After Tiller isn’t trying to offer that. After Tiller is much more personal and specific, though no less informative and challenging.
