“RESURRECT DEAD: THE MYSTERY OF THE TOYNBEE TILES” | director, Jon Foy
[PREMIERE SCREENING: Monday, Jan. 24, 3:00 pm — Holiday Village Cinema IV]
Admittedly the decision to make my movie was based on an absurd gamble. I dropped out of school and moved to another town in an attempt to solve a bizarre and obscure two-decade old mystery. Once relocated, this sober reality began to set in. What if we never find anything? What if we turn up an answer too quickly? Or if the story is lackluster? What on Earth was I even expecting to find? But, to my astonishment, the investigation began taking off. And suddenly the world felt magical and ripe with possibilities. My initial and fanciful hopes were actually coming true and it was a surreal time to be alive.
