As kids growing up in Maine, Zachary Oberzan and his older brother Gator used to make home videos parodying scenes from Hollywood movies such as Jean-Claude Van Damme’s karate blockbuster Kickboxer and the cult snuff movie Faces of Death. Fast forward twenty years, and they’re back at it, in a series of “before” and “after” featurettes. Through their subtle mix of home video, Hollywood film footage and live performance, the audience will discover the brothers’ relationship. One of them became a reputable actor who earns his living on stage and on screen. The other hit the rocks and did some time in prison, where he saw acting as the “art of manipulation”. The question is: could things have turned out otherwise? To what extent do their lives differ? Who is most real or sincere in his performance: the one who acts on stage, or the one who applies his art in real life? And what if our heroes turn out to be tragic figures in real life?
