Fahad Mustafa and Deepti Kakkar’s documentary Powerless was selected to premiere at the ongoing Berlin Film Fest. The first look of the film is out with three interesting trailers.

Powerless is set in Kanpur, a city with 15-hour power cuts, where a nimble young electrician provides robin-hood style services to the poor. Meanwhile, the first female chief of the electricity supply company is on a mission to dismantle the illegal connections, for good. The documentary recently received a grant from Sundance Institute’s Documentary Film Program and Fund.
