A documentary filmmaker from India will be in East Lansing for a screening of his latest movie tonight. Current State’s Scott Pohl speaks with Sanjay Kak about his latest film, “Red Ant Dream”. It’s a reflection on modern-day revolution in India. The MSU College of Arts and Letterswill screen the film on campus tonight, and Kak will be there.

Kak says two prominent figures in "Red Ant Dream" are Bhagat Singh, a revolutionary who was executed in 1931, and Pash, a poet who was assassinated in 1988. Followers connect their deaths on the same date, referring to them as the Martyrs of 23 March.

Scott Pohl is a general assignment news reporter and produces news features and interviews. He is also an alternate local host on NPR's "Morning Edition."
