Then come right back to this blog and click on the video above.

The video is a companion short called "Aningaaq." It was written and directed by Jonas Cuarón, the co-writer of "Gravity" and son of "Gravity" director Alfonso Cuarón.

In "Gravity," there is a riveting scene — no spoilers here — in which Sandra Bullock, an astronaut trying to save herself when there is a massive mishap in space, briefly contacts someone on Earth through her radio

In the scene, she begins talking to a strange man in a foreign language and can hear the sound of a barking dog and a crying baby. In "Aningaaq," you see the other side of that conversation.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros., was so pleased with the short, the studio is submitting it to the Oscars academy for consideration for best short film.

Check it out. It’s quite mesmerizing.
