IN TWEET: A NEW SHORT FILM SHOWS THE EARTH-BOUND SIDE OF ONE OF THE MOST EMOTIONALLY RESONANT SCENES IN “GRAVITY.”
GRAVITY has grown into a monster hit and, as I noted in my review, is easily one of the best movies of the year. One of the many memorable sequences in the film has been given new life thanks to a seven minute short that is currently making waves on the festival circuit.
Fans of GRAVITY will surely remember the profoundly tragic scene that sees Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) trapped in a Russian space capsule. She comes face to face with her own mortality while listening to a disembodied voice on the other end of a garbled radio signal. Think back to the barking dog and crying baby and you’ll know the exact moment I’m referring to.
Putting a unique spin on things is Jonas Cuarón. His short film ANINGAAQ offers an alternate take on the proceedings by showing us the Earth-bound side of the harrowing sequence. Cuarón is the son of GRAVITY director Alfonso Cuarón.
As The Hollywood Reporter recently noted, Warner Bros. has decided to submit ANINGAAQ for Oscar consideration in the live-action short category. See what all the buzz is about right here:
