Produced by the Birmingham Film Workshop, African Oasis is one of a trio of films that Birmingham based director Yugesh Walia made in the early 1980′s highlighting aspects of Black and Asian culture in Britain. The films now form part of the Birmingham Museums Trust collection & were acquired through the Collecting Birmingham project.
