About the TV Show Tell me a Story
This was the inaugural “Contame una Historia” (Tell me a Story) TV show that was filmed, back during Holy Week, 2011.It is about the genesis of the Argentine Flag and the use of its colors: light blue and white. The show is basically structured over the idea of two friends that meet, weekly, to talk, not about soccer, politics or women (some of the Argentine passions when we gather to talk or just for a coffee), but about some interesting facts that happened about 200 years ago, during the Argentine Bicentennial.
The attention of the audience is focused on that informal talk, that is illustrated with images, maps, and pictures that reinforce the message that the tv conductors try to communicate.
The dialogues are always filmed in natural or famous locations in Tucumán that are somehow related to the topic concerning each show.
