THE SWEDED VERSIONS OF THE STORY OF THE PRODIGAL SON In summer 2013 we filmed these different versions of "The lost son" in Amsterdam, often going together with an open picnik. We invited different people to play characters of this parable told by Jesus, or tosimply join the picnik. Only with a little script people were asked to play the story in a very short time. White "props" such as the moustache mark the characters because we sometimes had the same person playing several roles. We think that this story tells us a lot about God's character and his good plans with us. We hope it initiates further discussion. The idea is based on the phenomenon of"sweded" movies found on the internet. These are trashy version of well known movies. This had its origins in the movie "Be Kind Rewind". The outcome of the story may be different to the initial story in the bible due to the interpretation of the actors. The original story can be found in the bible in the book of Luke 15:11-32
