Director Penny Lane’s “devilishly fun documentary” (Indiewire) chronicles the rise of one of the most colorful and controversial religious movements in America. When media-savvy members of the Satanic Temple organize a series of public actions designed to advocate for religious freedom, they prove that a clever idea and a sense of mischief can challenge authority in profound ways. (2019, dir. Penny Lane, 95 min.)
Followed by Q&A with Stuart de Haan, spokesperson and legal advisor for the Satanic Temple.
