    Powerless

    Powerless is a documentary film about the electrical supply in the Indian city of Kanpur, told through the cat-and-mouse game between a 28-year-old electrician renowned for his prowess in stealing electricity and the city administration bent on clamping down on power-theft. Underlying this localized crisis is the glaring energy poverty in a country, where a third of the population is bereft of this basic need, and the rest grapple with power-cuts.
