Hail Satan?

(Penny Lane, 2019)
Penny Lane in person

A growing force in nonfiction filmmaking, 2017–18 Wexner Center Artist Residency Award recipient Penny Lane returns to present two of her recent projects on the occasion of The Flyover Fest.

Lane’s inspiring new documentary Hail Satan? chronicles the rise of one of America’s most colorful and controversial religious movements. The film follows media-savvy members of The Satanic Temple as they organize a series of public actions designed to advocate religious freedom and challenge corrupt authority. With little more than clever ideas, a mischievous sense of humor, and a few rebellious friends, they prove that you can speak truth to power in some truly profound ways. (95 mins., DCP)

Lane previously visited in 2013 to screen her award-winning documentary NUTS!. Don’t miss her films The Pain of Others (May 11) and Normal Appearances (on view all May in The Box).

This screening is presented in conjunction with The Flyover Fest, a fresh and inclusive arts festival featuring literature, film, music, panel discussions, and more in Columbus, May 8–11. Visit theflyoverfest.com for a complete schedule.

"Wickedly funny, fascinating and niftily made, this crowd-pleaser will prove, yet again, that the devil always has the best tunes."
