This drama gets to the heart of difficulties that many post-modern teens are dealing with today: peer pressure, cutting, suicide, divorced parents.

This is an authentic, hard-hitting and ultimately compassionate story about the forces that tear at today's families. The intense emotion of Emily's journey will motivate discussion on a wide range of issues relevant to today's teens and parents.

Parental Discretion Advised for thematic elements -- Suicide attempt, a crash sequence, drugs shown, language (one word).

"Everything about this film works. The dialogue, the acting, the direction. A four star, excellent rating."

Editorial Reviews

BLACK OASIS is a brilliantly directed short movie about teenage suicide, featuring a dark, rebellious, negative teenager who is influenced by a very evil young girl. BLACK OASIS is a complex, yet compelling, cautionary tale with a strong Christian worldview. The Gospel is presented, but rejected. The ending has what might be a slight glimmer of hope, but it is uncertain. Everybody does well in this short. The dialogue and the script have a fine edge to them. Excellent Overall!"

Emily may be just a teenager, but already she's suffered much in her young life: the divorce of her parents, negative peer pressure, and self-destructive behavior. Wherever she turns, the only one who seems to be her friend is a perverse force that encourages her to abandon hope. What is she to do?

This powerful depiction of Emily's struggle is an excellent resource for Christian youth groups. The run time of twenty-six minutes will allow youth leaders to discuss decisions Emily makes and how viewers of this DVD can make the right choices in their own lives.

The special features include Spanish and English subtitles, a discussion guide with over two hundred topics and questions, behind-the-scenes production photos, and the original trailer. Even though this material may seem difficult to discuss, it is handled tastefully and will help Christian teens face tough issues and allow them to learn in the discussions led by youth advisors. - Mary Lou Henneman
