Director: Alberto Barbera
Aningaaq, an Inuit fisherman camping on the ice over a frozen fjord, talks through a two way radio with a dying astronaut who is stranded in space, 500 kilometers above earth. Even though he doesn’t speak English and she doesn’t speak Greenlandic, they manage to have a conversation about dogs, babies, life and death.

Aningaaq is a film about the need for companionship, about how communication can transcend language, and about how a human connection can bring comfort even when faced with death.
