Fem Flicks Film Series: After Tiller

Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in May 2009, there are only four American doctors left who openly provide third-trimester abortions. AFTER TILLER paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians who have become the new number-one targets of the anti-abortion movement. The film weaves together revealing, in-depth interviews with the doctors from their lives and inside their clinics, where they counsel and care for their anxious, vulnerable patients at an important crossroads in their lives. By sharing the stories of several of these patients, AFTER TILLER illuminates the experiences of women who seek late abortions and the reasons why they do so.  (88min)

Fem Flicks is a joint effort of the UNT Women's & Gender Studies, the UNT Multicultural Center and the UNT Media Library.  Each screening is followed by a guest lecturer.

Fem Flicks Film Series: Tough Guise 2

Pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood.  In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and U.S. political culture.
