wrote Gravity with his father, Alfonso.

It featured the track Aningaaq from the Gravity Soundtrack by Steven Price, the same music in the film.

PlotEdit

Taking place in the fjords of Greenland, the stark white snow directly contrasted the black void of outer space. "Aningaaq" detailed the first appearance of the person who Dr. Ryan Stone talked to in space from his point of view, giving insight into his life.

While Gravity was rated PG-13, Aningaaq was rated PG for some thematic elements including drinking.

SignifiganceEdit

The theme of Gravity was all about letting go which was reflected in Aningaaq. Another interesting trivia point was that despite speaking two different languages, they are both concerned with similar things and connected emotionally despite the language barrier. Since Gravity was told to us by the use of visual metaphors to reflect the emotional journey of it's protagonist, one of these such metaphors was the usage of adversities to represent the problems that we faced in our everyday life that we must overcome. Both Aningaaq and Dr. Stone had adversities that they must find a way around. Dr. Stone was trapped in space with emotional weight from the death of her young daughter and Aningaaq was debating whether or not he should put his sick dog out of her misery. Eventually, both are able to overcome their challenges by letting go of the memories that made it difficult to proceed. 

A shooting star could also be seen before the credits.
