COVID-19 Update: Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 infections caused by the Omicron variant, this NCMA Cinema screening will now be virtual.
M.C. Escher: Journey to Infinity (2019). Directed by Robin Lutz, 81 min., NR
The career of Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher is portrayed in this documentary through diary excerpts and correspondence voiced by Stephen Fry, anecdotes from his sons, and his works. “M. C. Escher: Journey to Infinity tells us just enough of what we want to know about M. C. Escher’s life, but it’s essentially a presentation of his art; it’s like an art book that comes to life.” (Variety)
