Red Ant Dream

Sanjay Kak, India, 2013, color, video, 120'
Synopsis

‘Let us declare that the state of war does exist and shall exist’, the revolutionary patriot had said almost a hundred years ago, and that forewarning travels into India’s present, as armed insurrection simmers in Bastar, in the troubled heart of central India. To the east, beleaguered adivasis from the mineral-rich hills come forth bearing their axes, and their songs. And in the north the swelling protests by peasants sees hope coagulate– once more–around that iconic figure of Bhagat Singh, revolutionary martyr of the anti-colonial struggle. But are revolutions even possible anymore?
