Ron Pisaneschi, General ManagerHi, I'm Ron Pisaneschi. My Pick for next time is "Powerless" on Independent Lens. In Kanpur, India, a city with 15-hour power outages, a nimble young electrician provides Robin Hood-style services to the poor. Meanwhile, the first female chief of the electricity utility company is on a mission to dismantle the illegal connections, for good. This film explores these two interlocking stories. That's "Powerless" on Independent Lens Monday, November 3rd at 10:00 p.m. MT/PT. And that's my Pick for next time.
