Two must-see screenings coming to CT. I have seen one (and own the DVD) but I would be willing to see again if any locals want to attend.Â If you are local to these venues and welcome company, let me know. We can meet up.
After Tiller – Screening at Real Art Ways on 11/8 in Hartford, CT
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. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique look at one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and theyâ€™ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.

A Girl Like Her – Several dates available also at Real ArtWays in Hartford, CT
“Ann Fessler’s haunting group portrait of women who surrendered their children for adoption in the 1950s and ’60s juxtaposes their voices with stock archival images from an era when wrenching human drama was buried beneath airbrushed images of family and sexuality.” – Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
