Woody Allen calls the HBO documentary about his alleged sexual abuse a “hatchet job.”
The first episode of Allen v. Farrow aired on Sunday, and in it, Mia Farrow‘s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow detailed the abuse she allegedly experienced at the hands of the director when she was a young girl.
On Monday, Allen and his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, sent out a joint statement claiming the filmmakers “spent years … 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.”
The first episode in the four-part series also chronicled how Mia met Woody and brought him into her family.
