Your Brother. Remember? splices and dices home videos, Hollywood film footage, and live performance. As kids in Maine, Zachary and his older brother Gator loved making parodies of films, most notably Jean-Claude Van Damme's Kickboxer, and the notorious cult film Faces of Death. Then twenty years passed. Zack returned to his childhood home to re-create these films, shot for shot, as precisely as possible--but now seen through a twenty-year lens of emotional and physical wear and tear. Born in Belgium or America, the simple childhood desire for love gets confused with fame, drugs, & ambition. But with Mr. Van Damme in their corner, Zack & Gator step into the ring one last time for a title shot at redemption.
"The way Oberzan uses a personal story as an impetus to call up the human condition so striking, makes Your Brother. Remember? into a little masterpiece." -Marnix Rummens (Vlaams Theater Instituut)
A coproduction by Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2010, Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival , Grand Theater Groningen and brut Wien.
