Powerless directed by Fahad Mustafa and Deepti Kakkar will compete in the World Documentary Competition at Tribeca Film Festival 2013.  The festival will run from April 17 – 28, 2013.

The 12 competing films will vie for the Heineken Audience Award, Best New Director, Best Documentary Feature, Best Documentary Short and the Best Editing awards in ‘World Documentary Competition’ section.

Powerless traces the city of Kanpur that has 15-hour power cuts. Hundreds of people steal electricity, amidst high risks, to meet their needs. The real trouble starts with the entry of the first female chief of the electricity company who vows to wipe out all illegal connections. The film received a grant from Sundance Institute’s Documentary Film Program and Fund in 2012 and was screened in Berlinale Forum 2013.

Last year, Nisha Pahuja’s The World Before Her won the Best Documentary Feature at Tribeca.

Besides, Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist (India, Pakistan, USA) will screen in ‘Spotlight’ section of the festival.
