Hail Satan? with Filmmaker Penny Lane
November 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EST
Join director Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon) for a screening of her new documentary Hail Satan?, a film about The Satanic Temple, including its origins and grassroots political activism. The film shows Satanists working to preserve the separation of church and state against the perceived privilege of the Christian right. 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 worldAfter the film, there will be a Q&A with filmmaker Penny Lane and Dex Desjardins, Chapter Head of the Satanic Temple Albany Chapter.
