Coming Fall 2023

The Master Palindromist

Coming Fall 2023: A documentary film about Barry Duncan, a self-proclaimed master palindromist honing his reversibility skills in an effort to reassess his life, and possibly change the world.

A coming-of-age story about passion, oddity, patience, and the power of one's intellect, The Master Palindromist explores the depths of reversibility, literally and spiritually.

The film follows Barry through the ups and downs of applying his mastery of the alphabet towards a practical lifestyle, confronting unemployment at age fifty-five, struggling to find an intimate relationship, and navigating the unknown path of sudden recognition.
