Award-winning investigative filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering headline HBO’s newest documentary film Allen V. Farrow.

The four-part docu exhaustively reviews the most publicized case of alleged incest that rocked Hollywood: the sexual abuse claims against Woody Allen made by Dylan, his then seven-year-old adoptive daughter with ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow.

Reports said that the filmmakers spent three years re-examining records and conducting in-depth interviews with relatives and experts to shed greater context on the gripping scandal that fractured Allen’s sprawling family.

Allen and Mia Farrow made 13 influential films together over a decade. Their works have received two Oscar nominations, an Emmy, a Peabody, the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award and George Polk Award. Their latest critically acclaimed documentary feature, On The Record, is currently streaming on HBO Max.

Allen V. Farrow premieres same time as the U.S. on 22 February at 10 a.m. on HBO Go and HBO. It has a same day encore at 10 p.m. on HBO.
