Watch the Heavy 'Gravity' Spinoff Short Film

November 20, 2013

If you haven't seen Gravity yet, be warned of mild spoilers: A short companion film, Aningaaq, has surfaced, showing the other side of Sandra Bullock's desperate and existential radio conversation with a disembodied foreign voice – along with a barking dog and a crying baby – that occurs when she has secured herself into the cockpit of a Russian space capsule, temporary safe haven before what she believes will be her inevitable death. Watch it above!

PICS: Sandra Bullock with Baby Louis 

Aningaaq follows the moments of an Inuit fisherman working with his family and sled dogs on a remote fjord in Greenland when he receives Bullock's distress call, and the unique back-and-forth that ensues.

The seven-minute film was directed by Jonas Cuaron, who also co-wrote the intense space survival thriller with his father, director Alfonso Cuaron. Initially intended to be a Blu-ray bonus feature, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the film made the rounds at a few festival screenings and now has been submitted by Warner Bros. for Oscar consideration in the live-action short category. If it lands the nomination along with its sure-bet feature-length counterpart, this would mark the first time in Oscar history that a film and its spinoff short were up for kudos in the same year.
