Watch the Other Half of Sandra Bullock’s Gravity Distress Call, As Directed by Jonás Cuarón

Aningaaq, a short film directed by Jonás Cuarón — Gravity co-screenwriter and son of director Alfonso — reveals the other side of astronaut Ryan Stone's (Sandra Bullock's) "mayday" distress call: A fisherman named Aningaaq picks up the line, and as turns out, he's in Greenland. Even though he's unable to help her, and they can't even fully understand each other's words, the comfort of another human voice just is enough for them both.
