The film After Tiller profiles four compassionate and caring doctors who provide late-term abortion to women and their patients. See the After Tiller website or check out the Facebook page. The doctors are the late George Tiller’s colleagues and friends. After a world premiere at Sundance 2013, and receiving honors and awards nationally and internationally at multiple film festivals,the film has a limited theatrical release. The fiscal agent for After Tiller is our very own SLC Film Center so there are ties to this community. The film is here until Thursday only. Click here for daily show times at the Broadway.
At at time when women’s health care is under attack and abortion access is highly restricted, this film gives us insight into the decisions patients and their families make and the care they receive under very trying circumstances. Late term abortions are rare and they are the exclusive focus of this film. Many of us have not had a chance to hear these stories and decide what we think.
Please join us for the movie and a panel on October 24th at 7:25 at the Broadway Theater.
The film runs for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Immediately following the film there will be a short panel discussion with local leaders in women’s sexual and reproductive health. The panel includes: Karrie Galloway, CEO Planned Parenthood Utah, Holly Mullen, Executive Director Rape Recovery Center, Hannah Lobell, Planned Parenthood Utah Teen Council Member, Cullen Archer, Board Member Law Students for Reproductive Justice, Par Royer, OBGYN.
Please share this widely. It’s a wonderful conversation starter, a real thought-provoking film and one that shows a very human side of people we rarely get to know. I hope to see you there.
