Sanjay Kak’s new documentary is a love song to people across the country fighting to save our soul
Saroj Giri in Tehelka Magazine
"The film takes the genealogy of revolutionary war in South Asia out of the ossified narratives of the internal, and often fractious, ideological debates within the Indian Communist parties, and places it firmly within the history of people’s struggles for justice in South Asia. As such, the people’s war in Bastar is closer to the struggles for self-determination in Kashmir or Nagaland, rather than to how it is often represented: as a fringe within the broad spectrum of Left politics in India"

“The deaf state depletes trust, and the people must respond. Red Ant Dream, Sanjay Kak’s latest film, studies the possibilities of people’s revolt in India. It joins an impressive body of work looking at how the state and the powerful have colluded across the nation to silence peaceful protest”
