Plot Synopsis

From filmmakers Kirby Dick & Amy Ziering and Amy Herdy, ALLEN V. FARROW is a four-part documentary series that goes behind decades of sensational headlines to reveal the private story of one of Hollywood's most notorious and public scandals: the accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving Dylan, his then seven-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. Once celebrated for their on and off-screen partnership, Farrow and Allen's lives were irrevocably fractured and their sprawling family torn apart with the public disclosure of the abuse allegations and the vitriolic disputes that followed. This series interweaves new investigative work -- pieced together via intimate home movie footage, court documents, police evidence, revelatory videotape and never-before-heard audio tapes -- with exclusive, in-depth interviews on the subject with Mia Farrow, Dylan Farrow, Ronan Farrow, family friend Carly Simon, prosecutor Frank Maco, relatives, investigators, experts and other first-hand eyewitnesses -- many of them speaking publicly about the events for the first time. The series also includes prominent cultural voices exploring Allen's body of work in a broader context and reflecting on how public revelations about the personal lives of artists can lead to re-evaluations of their work. ALLEN v. FARROW also includes an intimate look at Farrow and Allen's charmed courtship and emergence as one of Hollywood's power couples, making thirteen influential films together over a decade. Over time, Allen becoming a father figure to Farrow's children as well as their shared children. Yet, threaded throughout all of their professional success and personal achievements there were dark undercurrents at play.
