Aningaaq is the name of the Inuit with whom Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) contacts accidentally when trying to radio for help from space, 500 kilometres above Earth, without success, since neither of them understands the other’s language.
Jonás Cuarón’s shortfilm, son of the Gravity’s director Alfonso Cuarón, shows the other side of the conversation that appears in the movie; Aningaaq does not speak English and the Dr. Stone does not speak Greenlandic, although, more or less, they manage to have a conversation about dogs, babies, and a bit about life. If you remember the voices and sounds, you will recognize Aningaaq, his wife, his baby and his dogs.
Nothing special to highlight about Gravity spin-off short film, except that if you have not watched the movie, you will probably not find anything of interest watching it…
