Adventure

  1. Gravity

    Alfonso Cuarón / Narrative, US Cinema / USA / 2013 / Adventure, Film Art, Vision Quest / 90 mins
    The film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, two surviving astronauts in a damaged space shuttle. Bullock as queasy first-timer Dr. Ryan Stone serves as the compelling emotional linchpin and Clooney as wisecracking mission commander Matt Kowalsky ends up becoming much more than simply light relief as the tale hurtles towards its conclusion.

    As a child, Inuk (played as a teen by newcomer Gaba Petersen) witnessed his father’s death in a tragic dog-sledding accident. Since then he has lived with his increasingly alcoholic mother in the capital, Nuuk, cut off from his former life in the wilds. When social services finally steps in, Inuk finds himself living near his traditional home and paired up with taciturn hunter Ikuma (Ole Jorgen Hammeken), whose attachment to the land and knowledge of traditional ways offer a glimpse of a different life for the troubled teen.

That changes when they discover that the new owners are going to demolish their home, the old outdoor cinema. Pete and his friend decides to trek to the city to plea for its preservation, only to get lost in the desert wilderness on the way.
