Meet Penny Lane, director of Hail Satan, playing in the U.S. Documentary Competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
Hail Satan? (Penny Lane). Lane has built an impressive and enigmatic filmography over the past ten years. Her films explore various American subcultures and subjects of historical ambiguity, with a focus on the the quirky, the extreme and the controversial. For this new one, which premieres later this month in Documentary Competition at Sundance, she’s found her perfect match in subject matter: the rise of the modern-day Satanic Temple movement.
