LIFE AFTER THE OASIS

LIFE AFTER THE OASIS

LIFE AFTER THE OASIS reflects on the past decade with original participants from The Oasis.

Synopsis

In 2008, feature documentary THE OASIS, shocked Australia with its gritty insight into the lives of wayward teens at a chaotic youth refuge in inner-city Sydney. Drug psychoses, emotional breakdowns, teenage pregnancies and the dangers of street life were writ large for a national audience.

Transitioning seamlessly between never-seen-before material from 2008 and contemporary footage, LIFE AFTER THE OASIS builds a rare, longitudinal portrait of these inspirational, disadvantaged young Australians. Now in their late 20s and 30s, they have weathered difficult and intense passages into adulthood, coming of age in a world rife with violence, poverty, addiction and mental illness. Yet their stories, though plagued by adversity, are stories of incredible resilience and survival.
