A delirious woman gets carried away by the Paraná River stream. This chameleon-like woman is able to become one with the plants or the fish; she is at times a heroin and at times a victim, rescued by a fisherman from drowning in the river.
The relationship Nature/body is at the core of the piece. The question about humans being able or not to control Nature triggers Fantasy, Mythology and the absurd.
The title Chámame is a word game between the Spanish word "llámame" (call me) and the folk rhythm "chamamé". It’s a call for attention from the woman of her musician partner.
The music by Alejandro Franov uses folk elements and instruments (accordion, guitar) and processes them through contemporary composition methods.
The film is also the support for a fantastic solo by Argentine choreographer Susana Szperling, framed by amazing landscapes and ending in a popular fiesta, which includes musicians, dancers and an asado (barbecue) cooked by gauchos.
