Watch The Trailer For M.C. Escher: Journey To Infinity

M.C. Escher: Journey To Infinity is the story of world famous Dutch graphic artist M.C Escher (1898-1972).

Equal parts history, psychology, and psychedelia, Robin Lutz’s entertaining, eye-opening portrait gives us the man 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. The film looks at Escher’s legacy: one can see tributes to his work in movies, in fiction, on posters, on tattoos, and elsewhere throughout our culture; indeed, few fine artists of the 20th century can lay claim to such popular appeal.

M.C. Escher: Journey To Infinity is now playing at a virtual cinema near you. Go to KinoMarquee to see the list of playdates.

  1. Wow! I’m really excited to see this! I’ve visited the Escher House in The Hague and saw a fantastic exhibit of his work at the National Gallery in Ottawa, but there’s just no getting enough of Escher!

    Thanks so much for posting this.
