Underlying the localized crisis in Kanpur is the glaring energy poverty in India, where one third of the population is bereft of this basic need, and the rest grapple with erratic power-cuts. The film has won several awards. The screening was followed by a discussion with the directors Fahad Mustafa and Deepti Kakkar and the audience.
This event was in association with Godrej Good and Green.
