Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of The Toynbee Tiles
2011
Directed by Jon Foy
86’

In the 1980s mysterious inscriptions began to appear on roads, highways and intersections in many American cities. They said: TOYNBEE IDEA / IN KUBRICK'S 2001 / RESURRECT DEAD / ON PLANET JUPITER. Most people paid them no attention, some thought they were a form of street art, and others considered it a sort of manifesto of an unidentified madman.

For independent artist and musician Justin Duerr they became almost an obsession - he kept on looking for answers, wanted to know what they meant and who put them there. For years he gathered and analyzed every clue the mysterious person left on the inscriptions on the streets of major cities in the USA and South America.

Together with a group of like minded enthusiasts who were trying to find out who the author of the tiles was and piecing together the elements of this puzzle, he discovered that the truth behind them is more bizarre, unbelievable and moving that he could ever imagine when he started his search.
