Ars Magna
POV Season 21
Short Film | 07/01/2008 | 8 Mins

Ars Magna, which means “great art” in Latin, is an anagram of the word “anagrams.” Enter into the obsessive and fascinating world of anagrams with Cory Calhoun, who took the first three lines of Hamlet’s “To Be or Not to Be” soliloquy and made them into what’s been called the “world’s greatest anagram.” This 2009 Emmy nominated film was produced by director Cory Kelley and Team Juicebox as part of the International Documentary Challenge, a timed filmmaking competition where filmmakers have five days to make a short nonfiction film.
