The Revolutionary Road

4A still from the documentary Red Ant Dream by Sanjay Kak

While adivasis fight for their land in the mineral-rich hills of Odisha, peasants' rebellion in Punjab find hope in the story of Bhagat Singh, the revolutionary patriot of the anti-colonial struggle. Independent filmmaker Sanjay Kak's documentary Red Ant Dream echoes the invisible world of those whose everyday fight is for an ideal world, despite the difficult circumstances.

"What is a revolution? It is when you reject a particular way and you want to change it. Be it Odisha, Punjab or Bastar, the film examines the aspiration for change. This is a chronicle of those who live the revolutionary ideal in India," says Kak, who has worked on the film for three years. "The audiences are curious. They don't want to be entertained and amused but want to be stimulated and challenged. I hope the film is able to do that,"he says.

The film will be screened at Stein Auditorium, India Habitat Centre at 7 pm today.
