Amaranto The Call of The Land

Amaranto The Call of the Land

Posted by

Based on a Folkloric legend from Córdoba, Argentina.

Set in the 1700’s in the vast and rugged landscape of the hills of Córdoba, in a still unshaped Argentina, Amaranto the gaucho, embarks on a quest where myth and reality meet. In a territory constantly ravaged by wildfires, Amaranto is suffering the exhaustion and despair of battling the burning of his land. In that moment he hears the words of a payador (troubadour) who sings the legend of a bull with golden horns that bellows fire and burns it all. As gauchos do, he bears a catholic rosary but soon his indigenous ancestry arises.

Directed by Antonia Ingrey (Argentina)
