The concept comes from "Be Kind, Rewind", a 2008 comedy movie where two clerks in a video store accidently erase their inventory and attempt to recreate the movies themselves. To swede, choose a scene (or two or three) from a film and recreate it! Use your friends, family, or strangers to stand in for characters. Be creative finding or making props. Don't be shy in taking artistic license with dialog.
