'Hail Satan?'

When: Thu., June 27, 7-10 p.m. 2019

“As a Satanist, I believe confronting injustice is an expression of one’s Satanic faith,” says one member of the Satanic Temple in a trailer for the 2019 documentary Hail Satan? Directed by Penny Lane, this eye-opening and humorous documentary takes a tongue-in-cheek look at this religious group with a strong commitment to social and political justice. Often clad in black and donning devil’s horns, its members use sometimes shocking tactics to advocate for issues such as religious freedom, women’s reproductive autonomy and the abolition of corporal punishment in public schools. As another member puts it in the trailer, “Satanism is looking out for the other, because we are the other.”

Price: $5-8.
