Miami Theatrical Premiere Engagement!


Director Penny Lane/ USA/ 95mins

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 and force us to consider the true meaning of the separation of church and state while asking, What kind of religious expression should be permitted in a secular nation?. 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.

“Wry and illuminating”-The New York Times, Critics Pick

“Wickedly funny, fascinating and niftily made.”-The Hollywood Reporter

“a sincere examination of a social and political movement delivered with just a soupçon of Christopher Guest.”-Entertainment Weekly

“It’s a fascinating documentary about ragtag political activists making fundamentally serious mockery at a high level of media savvy. It’s about jujitsu as performance art — turning an opponent’s outrage to one’s advantage; about deadpan as dramatic technique, and about the damnedest strategy you could imagine, summoning up Satan as a champion of religious freedom.”-Wall Street Journal
