This 7 minute-long short details the distress call that Sandra Bullock’s character Ryan Stone makes to the Chinese space station which she hopes can be her saviour. It takes her a little while to realise that the person she’s actually talking to is on Earth and for all she knows could be the last person she’ll ever talk to. The language is an issue but the dialogue between them both is simply brilliant and now watching this Short Film which was made for the Blu-ray release of the movie helps us to make sense of the other end of the conversation.
This shortfilm has been played at Venice and Telluride film festivals and has been received so well that Warner Bros. have put it in for Oscar consideration in the live-action short category.
