New Delhi: Fahad Mustafa and Deepti Kakkar`s feature documentary `Katiyabaaz` (Powerless) is the only Indian film in competition at the 12th Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

Set amidst extreme power shortage in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, the film tells the story from the perspective of an electricity thief and an IAS officer, who has vowed to eliminate electricity theft.

This is the duos first full-length feature film.

The film`s music has been composed by Indian Ocean, Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum and Gingger Shankar.

`Katiyabaaz` had its world premier at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival and was well received by critics and audience alike.

Hollywood star Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff founded the Tribeca Film Festival in 2002 with the mission of contributing to the revitalisation of lower Manhattan in the wake of the 9/11 disaster.

Since then the festival has grown into one of the most important celebrations of films and filmmakers worldwide.
