Learn tips and tricks for editing with appropriated footage from this award-winning nonfiction filmmaker!

Her most recent feature-length documentary HAIL SATAN? recently debuted at Sundance and released by Magnolia Pictures in 2019.

A scene taken from the film, we see a man putting the heads of what are presumed to be pigs on spikes.
We see someone's bedroom, decorated in dark, pink-toned decor with several neon light pieces. there is a person sitting at their desk with a pink upside down cross behind them.
People holding signs with varying messages, with the most prominent and centered one reading "HONK if you reject satan".
