[Zope] explicit object reference without acquisition

  I would like to call an Zope object (and pass variables to it) located
in a folder that is not reachable by acquisition from a DTML method.
When I tried the following it failed:
    If I have a dtml method in the folder "/a/b" called index_html.
Inside of this dtml method I have the following statement

   <dtml-var expr="c.d.e.(var1='var1')">

 The Zope folder object "/c/d/e" exists and has a DTML method inside it
called index_html that references the variable var1.
 When I try to evaluate the above expression, I get the following error:

 Error Type: AttributeError
Error Value: __call__

 What am I doing wrong? I would like to make use of objects inside of
Zope that are not reachable by acquisition via the <dtml-var>' or
<dtml-call>' methods.
