Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles
(John Foy, 2011, 86 min, USA, in English, Color, DVD)
Over the past three decades, hundreds of cryptic tiled messages about resurrection of the dead have been appearing in city streets across the U.S. and South America. Now one man becomes obsessed with solving this urban mystery. But as he starts piecing together the key events of the past, a story more surreal than he has ever imagined is revealed.
