The documentary, which premiered at Sundance, looks at the state of third trimester abortions post-the 2009 murder of Dr. George Tiller. Only four doctors, former colleagues of Tiller, perform the procedure in the country.
O-Scope’s Dan Berger and David Laub commented on the pickup.
Martha and Lana have created a moving and unique exploration of one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they’ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way. We were so impressed with their ability to present such a controversial issue with such respect and complexity, allowing the film to resonate equally for people both for and against the procedure.
O-Scope plans to theatrically release the film as well as a VOD release. Kudos to O-Scope for always picking up thoughtful, interesting and complex women-directed and centric projects.
