The disgraced director and his spouse launched a press release describing the four-part HBO docuseries as a “hatchet job.”
Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn have damaged their silence over HBO’s Allen v. Farrow, describing the docuseries as a “hatchet job riddled with falsehoods.”
In a press release to The Hollywood Reporter, the disgraced director and his spouse mentioned that Allen v. Farrow filmmakers Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick “had little interest in the reality” and accused the documentarians of “collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers” and solely giving them a “matter of days” to reply to the docuseries’ allegations.
In the primary episode of the four-part docuseries, which premiered on Sunday night time, Dylan Farrow, the daughter to actress Mia Farrow, begins to talk intimately in regards to the allegations of incest that she has leveled towards Allen, who was Mia’s associate throughout Dylan’s younger childhood. The first episode paints an image of Allen grooming Dylan from a younger age.
Allen v. Farrow options unprecedented entry with Dylan and Mia Farrow, interviews from Fletcher and Daisy Previn (two of Mia’s youngsters along with her late ex-husband André Previn), and testimonies from Farrow household pals Casey Pascal and Priscilla Gilma, who corroborate the inappropriate conduct between Allen and Dylan, then a toddler, that’s described by the mother-daughter pair.
Full assertion from Allen and Previn to THR:
“These documentarians had little interest in the reality. Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to place collectively a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods. Woody and Soon-Yi have been approached lower than two months in the past and given solely a matter of days ‘to reply.’ Of course, they declined to take action.
“As has been recognized for many years, these allegations are categorically false. Multiple businesses investigated them on the time and located that, no matter Dylan Farrow might have been led to consider, completely no abuse had ever taken place. It is unfortunately unsurprising that the community to air that is HBO – which has a standing manufacturing deal and enterprise relationship with Ronan Farrow. While this shoddy hit piece might acquire consideration, it doesn’t change the information.”
