Escher: Journey Into Infinity (PG)

Dir. Robin Lutz | 2018 | 80 mins | Netherlands

ESCHER: JOURNEY INTO INFINITY is a portrait of the Dutch artist, M.C Escher, and an exploration of his wide influence on modern art world-wide and the inspiration he provided for musicians and popular culture today.

This is the first complete feature length documentary about Escher, based on hundreds of letters, diaries and lectures written by him during his lifetime. Through the narration of Stephen Fry, we hear him speak in his own words, about his life, his fears, doubts, politics and work. 

Filmmaker Robin Lutz says, “We get under his skin and come as close as possible to meet and understand this great graphic artist. The camera is Escher’s eye!” 

The film includes interviews with Escher’s sons George and Jan, as well as musician, and collector of Escher’s work, Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young). The film has been described by Variety as ‘an art book that comes to life’, referencing the clever use of animating Escher’s work.

“Educationally pragmatic and historically enlightening” Jared Mobarak, THE FILM STAGE
