MAY 3 – 9
What is the Satanic Temple? Is it religion? A cult? Performance art? Acclaimed filmmaker Penny Lane gains unprecedented access to this enigmatic movement, which has grown to over 100,000 members around the world in just five years. HAIL SATAN? explores the Temple’s fight for equality, its focus on community, and its devilish sense of humor. In an era when founding principles and institutions can’t be trusted to work on behalf of all people, these progressive Satanic crusaders advocate to save the soul of a nation.

“Wickedly funny, fascinating and niftily made, this crowd-pleaser will reign at festivals and prove, yet again, that the devil always has the best tunes.” – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
“Provocative, hilarious, and latently enraging documentary about The Satanic Temple.” – David Ehrlich, indieWire
“Lane sets out to subvert American history with intelligence and wit. Here, she asks us to question why certain religions are deemed “normal,” even though, notes one Temple member, Catholic mass is all about the symbolic drinking of blood.” – Amy Nicholson, Variety
