“Thank you to everyone for their kind words, the outpouring of support means more to me than I can say,” she said on Twitter Monday. “Speaking the truth is so difficult, but I hope any fellow survivors who watched last night know they are not alone.”
She added, “The truth is something that cannot be changed.”
In her post, the subject of the four-part docuseries pointed any viewers who might feel empowered to speak out after watching to seek out RAINN as a resource.
In Allen v. Farrow, which premiered on Sunday, Dylan sits down with filmmakers Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick to speak in detail about the now-famous allegations of incest that she has leveled against disgraced filmmaker Woody Allen, who was mother Mia Farrow’s partner during Dylan’s young childhood.
The first episode also featured Mia speaking publicly about Allen for the first time in decades.
The revelations in the mother-daughter pair’s testimonies, which are corroborated by family members and friends, surround Allen’s inappropriate and “intense affection” for a young Dylan. Those claims include instances of Allen, in his underwear, cuddling with Dylan in bed as a child, touching her “suggestively” and grooming Dylan from a young age. “I was always in his clutches,” Dylan recalls of her relationship with Allen. “He was always hunting me.”
Allen v. Farrow was filmed in secret over three years and purports to reveal new evidence and several bombshells about one of Hollywood’s most notorious scandals. Dylan first alleged in 1992 that Allen sexually assaulted her when she was 7 years old. She detailed her claim in a 2014 column in The New York Times, but it was an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times in 2017 amid the #MeToo movement that would ultimately bring her side of a highly documented story to the forefront, and push the once-revered filmmaker into Hollywood’s rearview mirror.
Allen has denied ever having been sexually inappropriate or abusive and released a statement with wife Soon-Yi Previn shortly after Sunday’s premiere accusing the documentarians of “collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers” and calling the series a “shoddy hit piece.”
In a recent story with The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Herdy, the lead investigative producer at Ziering and Dick’s Jane Doe Films, said she made the first of two requests to interview Allen for the project. His team never responded.
