Oxfam India's stand on allegations of sexual harassment against filmmaker of Balekempa

Oxfam India

We have been made aware of the allegations of sexual harassment against Ere Gowda, director of ‘Balekempa’, one of the films shortlisted for the Oxfam Best Film on Gender Equality Award this year at JIO MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star 2018. We understand that the producers of the film, Zoo Entertainment, have withdrawn the film from all festivals including JIO MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star 2018.
 
Oxfam India stands in solidarity with the survivor. We firmly believe that the need of the hour is to continue to challenge systemic power and its abuse in its many forms. This must not be seen as a war against men. We also believe that at the same time, the work towards the strengthening of the due processes to fight harassment at workplace must continue at all costs.
