Gravity - New Short Film - Oscar contention

Short film reveals the other side of Sandra Bullock's distress call in Gravity


DURING a key scene in the smash hit Gravity, Sandra Bullock's stranded-in-space astronaut has a frustrating radio conversation with a man on Earth speaking in a foreign language.
 
Director Alfonso Cuaron and his co-screenwriter son, Jonas, elected not to show the other side of the conversation in their film.

But Warner Home Video commissioned Jonas to make a 6 ½ minute companion short for next year's video release of Gravity - and Aningaaq turned out so spectacularly well that Warner has submitted this remarkable piece for the Academy Awards' Best Live Action Short competition.

Filmed on location in Greenland for $100,000, the short stars local Orto Ingnatiussen as an Inuit fisherman stationed on a remote fjord, and uses Bullock's voice from Gravity.

According to the Hollywood Reporter , Bullock told a Los Angeles crowd that the short, which has been screened at festivals in Venice and Telluride, is an "absolutely beautiful piece of loneliness …. I get goose bumps thinking about it.''

Found it interesting, even though I still haven't found my way to the cinema yet to see this movie - maybe tomorrow night (fingers crossed).

Dear son-in-law said that he was taking us once I am well enough. Today they come home with Batman & Robin to add to my collection.

Interesting little add on, nice touch for DVD buyers.

Whoever came up with the idea should get a big juicy bonus... $$$

Hmm it reminds me of some other docu / short film. Even the name Aningaaq is similar. Can´t remember the name now.
