Created in 2007 and never intended for public viewing, it continues to screen internationally in cinemas, theaters, art institutes and film festivals. Your brother.

A stand-alone film version of Your brother. Remember? had its cinematic premiere in New York City in 2012.

Tell Me Love Is Real, a theater/film/musical hybrid, premiered in October 2013 at deSingel Antwerp and is currently touring internationally, with a cinematic premiere in May 2016 in Copenhagen.  His most recent work, The Great Pretender, blends Iranian new wave cinema, live theater, and live reconstructions of Elvis concerts. It premiered in December 2015 at deSingel Antwerp, and is touring internationally.  Oberzan has performed with avant-garde theater pioneers The Wooster Group and Richard Foreman, and has released two albums of original songs, including Athletes of Romance.
