Summary
It tells the story of world-famous Dutch graphic artist M.C Escher (1898-1972). Equal parts history, psychology, and psychedelia, Robin Lutz's entertaining, eyeopening portrait gives the man through his own words and images: diary musings, excerpts from lectures, correspondence, and more (voiced by British actor Stephen Fry, Gosford Park), while Escher's woodcuts, lithographs, and other printing techniques 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
