A Man, A Plan, A Palindrome


"A Man, a Plan, a Palindrome" began as a short documentary profiling 2012 champion Mark Saltveit. When Will Shortz invited us to premiere the film at the 2015 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, we realized this could be the start of something bigger. The response has been so strong that we've decided to expand the idea into a feature film! This proposed film will follow the greatest palindromists in the world leading up to the second-ever World Palindrome Championship in early 2017. The film will also delve into the rich history buried beneath this obsession with syntactical symmetry.
