The Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves presents a compelling, and provocative argument for protecting one of America's founding principles, the separation of church and state, in the upcoming Magnolia Pictures documentary, which is exploring the rise of the new Satanic opposition movement in the U.S.

Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon), "Hail Satan?" is a tongue-in-cheek portrait of The Satanic Temple, a political activist group of misfits and outcasts led by free-speech provocateur Lucien Greaves who mockingly use Satanic imagery and Satanic symbols to protest Christian theocracy, pushing back against America's new wave of the religious right.

"Hail Satan?" premiered to mostly strong reviews at Sundance this year. The documentary is now slated for an April 19th theatrical release.

synopsis:
Chronicling the extraordinary rise of one of the most colorful and controversial religious movements in American history, HAIL SATAN? is an inspiring and entertaining new feature documentary from acclaimed director Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon).

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 world.
