'As has been known for decades, these allegations are categorically false,' said the disgraced director

The Annie Hall director Woody Allen and his wife Soon-Yi Previn released a public statement following the release of the four-part HBO docuseries ‘Allen v Farrow.’ They called it a "hatchet job riddled with falsehoods."

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, they said that filmmakers Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick "had no interest in the truth." 

They also alleged that the filmmakers collaborated with ‘the Farrows and their enablers’ and gave the couple only a "matter of days" to address the allegations.

Directed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, the four-part docuseries revolves around the relationship between Woody Allen and Mia Farrow that ended over a string of scandals, including sexual assault allegations against Allen involving Dylan, the couple’s seven-year-old daughter; the controversial custody trial and Allen’s subsequent marriage to Soon-Yi, Farrow’s adopted daughter who at the time lived with the couple.

"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. Woody and Soon-Yi were approached 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 Ronan Farrow. While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts," read the statement from the Allens.
