The documentary film was written and directed by Jessica Yu, who also directed the Oscar winning film “Breathing Lessons: The Life and Work of Mark O’Brien”.
“Oasis” was produced by Participant Media, the company behind “An Inconvenient Truth”, which helped Al Gore win a Nobel Peace prize by raising awareness of global warming.
The principal message of the movie is simple and hard-hitting: The impending water crisis that is brewing both in the United States and nearly everywhere else will become the central
issue facing our world in the coming century. The cause of the problem is us: the result of overuse, pollution, irresponsible management, drought, global warming, and the failure of most lay people to understand that there are finite limits to the supply of clean water available to them because of those factors.
