Dylan Farrow, adopted daughter of Woody Allen, used Twitter on Sunday (28) to vent about the release of a childhood video shown in the documentary Allen vs. Farrow, in which he accuses the film director of sexual abuse when he was just seven deity. The writer, now 35, said the recording could encourage reports from other victims.
Dyland wrote: “I decided that I would authorize the screening in the hope that little Dylan’s voice can help others who are suffering in silence, that they feel understood and not feel alone. I hope this video will help all of us to allow painful secrets safely leave their hiding places, so that we can continue with strength and peace. Without any shame, without fear, without sadness and without silence “.
The video is from 1992 and shows Dylan as a child telling his mother – actress Mia Farrow – how his father asked her to spend a “father and daughter moment” with him and touched her in her private parts. Allen, for his part, has already denied the accusations more than once and says that his daughter was brainwashed by Mia.
Dylan says in the video: “He touched my parts and then he was breathing on my leg. And then, he did this, squeezed me very hard and I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t want him to do that, Mom. I didn’t like it “.
After the first of the four episodes of the documentary was shown, Woody Allen’s wife Soon-Yi Previn (adopted daughter of Mia Farrow’s first marriage and Dylan’s sister) released a statement questioning the content of the production. She classified the work as “dirty work”, “with no interest in the truth”.
Dylan Farrow claims to have been abused by her father when he was already separated from his mother and was visiting the family home. The documentary was produced by HBO and gathered testimonies from other friends and family of Allen and Farrow to further Dylan’s accusations against his father.
