Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles
Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 4:00 PM (PDT)
Palo Alto, CA
"Toynbee Idea In Kubrick’s 2001 Resurrect Dead On Planet Jupiter" Tiles with this message have been found embedded in the asphalt of cities in the Americas since the 1980s. Curious about the maker and meaning of this meme, underground artist/writer/musician Justin Duerr dug into the enigma. Were the tiles made by a secret society? A lone tiler named Railroad Joe? Duerr and two other Toynbee fanatics piece together what appear to be clues: an address on a Chilean tile, the special effects in Stanley Kubrick’s famous film, the philosophy of Arnold Toynbee (historian-philosopher), who theorized about bringing dead molecules back to life, and a David Mamet play. Filmmaker Jon Foy documents a fascinating mystery and the sleuths determined to solve it.
Total Run Time: 85 minutes
