Here’s an interesting curiosity that was meant for release on the DVD/Blu-Ray of this year’s Gravity. Fair warning, if you haven’t seen that film (and you should), you may not want to read any further or watch this short.
So the setup of Jonas Cuaron’s Aningaaq is this: at one point in the movie, Sandra Bullock’s character Ryan Stone makes radio contact with someone on Earth. At first she hopes that it is NASA or someone else who can send her aid, but it turns out to be simply a random contact, and one who doesn’t even speak English at that. Nonetheless, she is at the point where any human contact is welcome, and she tries to talk to them as long as possible. This short reveals the other side of that conversation.
