A spokesperson for Woody Allen and his spouse Soon-Yi Previn has issued a assertion to the press in response to the HBO docuseries “Allen v. Farrow,” which premiered Sunday, detailing Mia Farrow and daughter Dylan Farrow’s allegations of abuse in opposition to the director.
Allen and Previn declare the filmmakers — Kirby Dick, Amy Ziering and Amy Herdy — had “little interest in the reality” and had been “surreptitiously collaborating” with the Farrows to do a “hatchet job riddled with falsehoods.”
In four-part docuseries, which accommodates interviews with the Farrows in addition to shut household mates and consultants, Dylan Farrow says that “for the longest time I’ve been attempting to set the report straight…No matter what you assume you already know, it is simply the tip of the iceberg.”
While Allen and Previn’s spokesperson say the couple was given “days to reply,” Herdy instructed Variety that she began reaching out to Allen in 2018.
Allen and Previn’s full assertion will be learn under:
“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 had 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 companies investigated them on the time and located that, no matter Dylan Farrow could 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 could achieve consideration, it doesn’t change the information.”
