DOK Leipzig 28 October – 3 November 2019
62nd International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film
DOK Leipzig Film Festival



A casino like a mirage: 2,800 square metres of gambling space, 220 gambling machines and 34 gambling tables. Jericho, Palestinian territories: “Oasis” has been waiting for its re-opening since 2000. After two years of operation and corruption scandals, the Israeli-Jordan-Palestinian development aid project was stopped. Veneta Androva gradually makes the story emerge through an invisible avatar in flickering images of a CGI desert.
