Jon Foy – Resurrect Dead – In Jon Foy’s feature-length documentary Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles, strangeness is afoot. Most people don’t notice 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 imagined, and one that hits disturbingly close to home.
Foy is a self-taught, multi-disciplined filmmaker who specializes in editing and composing. His debut documentary Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles won him the 2011 Sundance Directing Award.
