Sundance 2013: Abortion Doc 'After Tiller' Premieres to Cheers, Tight Security

PARK CITY -- The abortion documentary After Tiller made its Sundance Film Festival debut Friday afternoon amid extraordinary security measures, including metal detectors and pat-downs. Yet despite fears that the high-profile bow of a film about the four U.S. doctors who still perform late-term abortions could lead to protests or even violence, the audience reception was overwhelmingly positive.

From directors Martha Shane and Lane Wilson, After Tiller chronicles the lives of the only physicians in the country still performing third-trimester abortions in the wake of the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in 2009.

The film premiered as part of Sundance's U.S. Documentary Competition at Park City's Temple Theatre. Several uniformed police officers were on hand as well as what appeared to be bodyguards.
