Resurrect Dead

2-21-12_toynbee_tile.jpg

Tuesday, director Jon Foy joins us for the latest installment in our Through the Lens documentary film series. Foy created one of the strangest docs at Sundance last year. It's about the mystery of the Toynbee tiles, linoleum tiles that started showing up embedded in roads along the East coast in the 1980s with bizarre messages carved in them. Foy joins us to talk about the film and the mystery. He'll also be on hand when we screen the film Thursday at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. Thursday, February 23, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will host a free screening of "Resurrect Dead" at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and director Jon Foy will be on hand for a Q&A immediately following the film. [Details]
