This new documentary film about world famous Dutch graphic artist Maurits Escher is based on more than 2000 letters he wrote during his lifetime. We hear him speak about his life, his fears, doubts, politics, work and the amazement he encounters time and time again. Whilst he speaks, what he sees is recorded by the camera. Two of his sons, George (91) and Jan (79) are featured as well as Sir Roger Penrose, the British mathematician, who, with his father gave Escher the idea’s for some of his world-famous prints. Additionally, musician Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young) tells about his contact with Escher who inspired him to become an art collector. The film looks at Escher’s legacy and how his work even today inspires comic strips, advertisements, movies etc. and draws massive visitors worldwide to exhibitions of his art.
