The Oasis is a real or imagined place
of refuge from strife, stress,
hopelessness, visionlessness and fatigue.
People need an atmosphere and environment
of emotional, visual and auditory respite,
leading to intense satisfaction.
Fortunately, even though the heights of pleasure are finite,
memory preserves all or most of the experience.
The intensity of anticipation grows until the moment of culmination,
then finally the goal is reached,
contact and involvement within The Oasis.
The Oasis contains sounds, smells, tastes and sights,
which are wonderful to experience,
enjoyable to be a part of and associated with;
a perspective and setting leading the individual and group
to feel at home, within The Oasis.
The construction of The Oasis requires years.
Whether by nature, nurture or a combination of both,
the progress towards The Oasis is gradual,
but determinedly and increasingly successful and rewarding.
Once the setting is reached, the seekers may rest, relax
and absorb the thoughts, emotions, discussions
and visual delights of The Oasis.
The pleasures and rewards of The Oasis are there
to be shared with one and all,
during the XXVIII. Black International Cinema Berlin 2013.
We await you and everyone is welcome!
