Huh. I didn't see this on the film's website, but when I was watching *another* film on Vimeo, Vimeo started auto-playing Abortion Helpline, This Is Lisa afterwards. So, you can watch *that* film online, too:

So that leaves only one shortlisted film in this category -- Hunger Ward -- that I have not yet watched online.
