Maintaining a small oasis in the desert is a difficult job. For this mother and her young boy, it’s essential for their survival. How can they keep the shifting sands at bay? Oasis is a wordless story about conservation, care, and a bit of luck. Can Amaranthe and her son Edwin persevere as the desert grows around their jungle home?

The 2019 animated short is a graduation film by Gobelins student directors Florencia Atria, Léonard Hicks, Man Luo, Claire Matz, Luana Nguyen Tri Luan, and Marine Pétri.
