Details

With an introduction by Joan Burnett

Directed by: Penny Lane
Starring: Lucien Greaves, Jex Blackmore 

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 humour, 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. An inspiring and entertaining new feature documentary from acclaimed director Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon). 

 

With an introduction by Joan Burnett, originator and co-programmer of Film With Pride, at 6pm. Joan’s interests are LGBT+ film from around the world and the history of LGBT+ activism.
