It’s interesting to see how what Bullock thought was an uplifting conversation was actually about killing Aningaaq’s favorite dog – pretty bleak, but also thematically connected to Gravity with a theme about the circle of life. The Hollywood Reporter also brings word that this short could very well make Academy Award history: if Gravity is nominated for Best Picture (which is a certainty at this point) and Aningaaq is nominated for Live Action Short, this could be the first feature and spinoff short film coming from the same source material to be nominated in the same year (and the father/son aspect is pretty cool, too).
What do you think of the younger Cuaron’s short film? Let us know in the comments below.
