Remember that touching scene in Gravity, when Sandra Bullock's character was on the verge of giving up and made a distress call to Earth, only for it to be intercepted by an Inuit fisherman?
Gravity screenwriter Jonás Cuarón has finally revealed the identity of the other person who was on the line in this seven-minute short titled 'Aningaaq.' Be warned, this might make you feel super melancholic for the rest of the day:

But it wasn't until Jonas, on a two-week trek gathering elements for his film, was inspired by the local inhabitants' profound attachment to their sled dogs that he decided to incorporate that element into the plot.

Ironically, making it hard to decide whose side the show’s at. Read more
