Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn responded to HBO’s Allen v. Farrow saying filmmakers Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick had collaborated with the Farrows.
In the first episode of the four-part doc series, which premiered last night, Dylan Farrow, the daughter to actress Mia Farrow, gave more details about the allegations of incest that she has leveled against Allen.
Allen and Previn released this statement to The Hollywood Reporter,
“These documentarians had no interest in the truth.
Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to put together a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods. Woody and Soon-Yi were approached less than two months ago and given only a matter of days ‘to respond.’ Of course, they declined to do so.
As has been known for decades, these allegations are categorically false.
Multiple agencies investigated them at the time and found that, whatever Dylan Farrow may have been led to believe, absolutely no abuse had ever taken place. It is sadly unsurprising that the network to air this is HBO – which has a standing production deal and business relationship with Ronan Farrow.
While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts.”
Allen v. Farrow features interviews with Dylan and Mia Farrow and Fletcher and Daisy Previn (two of Mia’s children with her late ex-husband André Previn) it also has testimonies from Farrow family friends, Casey Pascal and Priscilla Gilma, who describe inappropriate behavior between Allen and Dylan.
Allen v Farrow airs on HBO & HBO Max. Here’s the promo for episode 2.
