This is the story of world famous Dutch graphic artist M.C Escher (1898-1972). Equal parts history, psychology, and psychedelia, this 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. 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 talks about Escher’s rediscovery in the 1970s. The film also examines Escher’s legacy -- one can see tributes to his work in movies and fiction, on posters and tattoos, and elsewhere throughout our culture. Indeed, few fine artists of the 20th century can lay claim to such popular appeal.
