Critically-acclaimed director Woody Allen's past scandals are being revisited in the HBO documentary Allen V. Farrow. New light is being shed on the shocking reality and Woody is being forced to respond.

Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn's Response to Allen V. Farrow

Everyone remembers when it came to light that Woody Allen had begun a sexual relationship with his partner of 12 years Mia Farrow's daughter Soon-Yi Previn. The reality was even more shocking and unbelievable than what people first thought. Mia Farrow had found nude photos of her daughter in the possession of her long-time partner Woody.


The Annie Hall director was 56 at the time and Soon-Yi was somewhere between 19 and 21 and was still in a relationship with Soon-Yi's mother Mia when they began their sexual relationship. Somehow Woody was able to escape the scandal and has recovered time and time again. 

All of this and more is being detailed in the new documentary Allen V. Farrow. A spokesperson for Allen and Previn told Entertainment Tonight, "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."

Apparently, HBO had approached Allen and Previn, "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 [Woody's son] Ronan Farrow. While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts."

Mia and Woody were not only in a relationship for 12 years, but the pair also adopted 2 children together and had their son Ronan in 1987. Their adopted daughter Dylan also alleges abuse at the hands of Woody. Woody and Soon-Yi married in 1997 and the pair have adopted 2 children. 

The documentary will be airing in 4 parts on HBO every Sunday. See the trailer here:
