M.C. Escher: Journey To Infinity tell the story of the renowned Dutch graphic artist M.C Escher (1898-1972) and his inimitable works.

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.

One can see tributes to Escher’s work in movies, fiction, posters, tattoos and elsewhere throughout our culture. Just take a look at your nephew’s dorm room wall…!

-Making-of featurette
-Behind-the-scenes stills gallery
