When the Academy Award nominations are announced later this week, one name you won’t be hearing is “After Tiller” for best documentary feature.

No, it may not be a crowd-pleaser like “20 Feet from Stardom” or innovate the art form as “Stories We Tell” and “The Act of Killing” have, but “After Tiller” is an immensely important piece that, with any luck, will be screened in communities for months and years to come.
