HAIL SATAN? is an Intriguing and Interesting Look at One of America's Most Misunderstood Religious Movements
Magnolia Pictures is distributing a new doc and it’s going to be a controversial one for sure. Hail Satan? is not just a look at the Satanic Temple but at the idea of Christian ideals being pushed on the American people by our own government. What could have been an interesting enough doc on it’s own has now skyrocketed into the must see quadrant, with these Satanists questioning these goings-on and even touting that they’re patriotic in their motives. I can’t wait to see this.
HAIL SATAN? had its World Premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival
Directed by Penny Lane
Produced by Gabriel Sedgwick
Chronicling the extraordinary rise of one of the most colorful and controversial religious movements in American history, Hail Satan? is an inspiring and entertaining new feature documentary from acclaimed director Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon). When media-savvy members of the Satanic Temple organize a series of public actions designed to advocate for religious freedom and challenge corrupt authority, they prove that with little more than a clever idea, a mischievous sense of humor, and a few rebellious friends, you can speak truth to power in some truly profound ways. As charming and funny as it is thought-provoking, Hail Satan? offers a timely look at a group of often misunderstood outsiders whose unwavering commitment to social and political justice has empowered thousands of people around the world.
