Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn have responded to HBO’s “Allen v. Farrow”,

They claim the documentary is a “hatchet job riddled with falsehoods.”

“The four-part documentary series Allen v. Farrow, from award-winning investigative filmmakers Kirby Dick, Amy Ziering and Amy Herdy, goes behind the years of sensational headlines to reveal the private story of one Hollywood’s most notorious and public scandals: the accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving Dylan, his then 7-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow; their subsequent custody trial, the revelation of Allen’s relationship with Farrow’s daughter, Soon-Yi; and the controversial aftermath in the years that followed.”

n a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the disgraced director and his wife said that Allen v. Farrow filmmakers Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick “had no interest in the truth” and accused the documentarians of “collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers” and only giving them a “matter of days” to respond to the docuseries’ allegations.
