Director Jane Campion Files Sex Complaint After Indian Film Festival

Oscar-winning film director Jane Campion claims she was sexually harassed at the India International Women's Film Festival in New Delhi. In a complaint to Indian authorities, Campion wrote, “I am not the only filmmaker to be badly treated. Many other women experienced rude and even lewd advances from the husband of the festival director and all felt shocked and angry that such a brazen fraud could be allowed to proceed unimpeded by the Indian authorities.” Campion, who has directed The Piano and Bright Star, and Pakistani director Ayesha Arif Khan allege they were harassed by Bhaskar Deb, the husband of the festival director. He has denied the allegations and authorities are investigating the claims.
