We're making another movie!

On the heels of completing the Central Asian Prodigal Son film The Lost Sons (view it below), which speaks to the hearts of people in simple, agrarian cultures, we are now preparing to film another movie!

Sara and I are excited to be producing a new, contemporary, culturally-relevant Prodigal Son film called “Mbretëria” (The Kingdom) in Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro from May 27 to June 29 in the Albanian language. The expectation is for this timeless retelling of Jesus' powerful parable to have a broad appeal across Europe and other continents. Follow-up material is also planned to be created, so that viewers can get connected with churches and believers.

We're thrilled to have professionals from the Kosovo National Theater and Kosovo television acting in this film, which will bring a high quality to the production and give the film a greater appeal.

Artan Geca
