M.C. Escher: Journey to Infinity
Directed by Robin Lutz
Runtime: 1hr 21min
Documentary / Netherlands, USA / 2021
Equal parts history, psychology, and psychedelia, Robin Lutz’s entertaining, eye-opening portrait gives us the story of world famous Dutch graphic artist M.C Escher (1898-1972) through his own words and images. Diary musings, excerpts from lectures, correspondence and more are voiced by British actor Stephen Fry, while Escher’s woodcuts, lithographs, and other print works appear in both original and playfully altered form. Two of his sons, George (92) and Jan (80), reminisce about their parents while musician Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills & Nash) talks about Escher’s rediscovery in the 1970s.
