Synopsis

In The Mind’s Eye, the artist M. C. Escher becomes trapped in the very “impossible constructions” he made famous in his drawings–a world with no clear beginnings or endings, where time itself follows no set rules. Within this hall-of-mirrors universe, Escher sets out to understand the true nature of immortality–not just his own, but that of anyone who creates and seeks to live through their creation. Along the way, he grapples with the slippery notion of infinity, the timeless nature of love and the elusive treasure of perfection–pursuits he ultimately finds truly never end.
