Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles

USA/English (88 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! Most people have never noticed the hundreds of cryptic tiled messages about resurrecting the dead that have been appearing in city streets over the past three decades. But Justin Duerr does. For years, finding an answer to this long-standing urban mystery has been his obsession. He has been collecting clues that the tiler has embedded in the streets of major cities across the U.S. and South America. But as Justin starts piecing together key events of the past, he finds a story that is more surreal than he could possibly have imagined.

Moody, atmospheric, funny, suspenseful, and at times just plain jaw-dropping, Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles can best be described as the love child of David Lynch and Errol Morris, and is easily one of the most unique and satisfying documentaries of the year - you just can’t make this stuff up.
