Event Details

There are 1.5 billion people living without electricity worldwide. Of these, 400 million live in India. 

The lack of energy has a devastating impact on livelihoods, education and health, and overcoming it has been identified by the United Nations as the main barrier to social and economic development. 

In July of last year, India experienced the largest power outage in history, an outage that affected over 620 million people - half of India's population and 9% of the world's population!

NY+acumen and directors Deepti Kakkar and Fahad Mustafa invite you to join us for an exclusive screening of their film, Powerless, a Tribeca Film Festival and Berlin Film Festival accepted feature.
After the film we will have a lively panel discussion including:
  • Directors Deepti Kakkar and Fahad Mustafa
  • Rohit Gawande, a member of Acumen's portfolio team
  • Professor Ellen Morris, Director of the Energy and Environment Concentration at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs
Come for the special screening, and stay for the engaging conversation that will surely follow.
