Un meeting that promises a lot. Today, Tuesday 28 June, at 16.30 Italian Alec Baldwin will interview Woody Allen on Instagram. It will be a confrontation focused on allegations of sexual abuse that the director of 86 years old received from adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. He allegations that go back to 1992, when Dylan was seven, and after the relationship between Allen and Soon-Yi, adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and ex-husband André Previn.

    Alec Baldwin’s announcement

    Yesterday Alec Baldwin announced the live broadcast today together with the beloved and hated director probably in equal measure. “I premise: I have NO INTEREST in the hypocritical judgments and posts expressed on this social network. I am OBVIOUSLY a person who has the beliefs of him and I DO NOT CARE ABOUT the speculations of others“.

    Adding: «If you think a trial should be conducted via an HBO documentary, that’s your problem“.

    Dylan Farrow’s accusations against Woody Allen

    The reference is to the period between 1992 and 1993when following the breakup between Mia and Woody over the director’s story with Soon-Yi, a story emerged of an abuse made by little Dylan. It took place in the actress’s country house, in the midst of a custody battle for her children, including Ronan Farrow. Two investigations cleared the director of a trial. But everything has become extremely topical since 2014, with a letter from Dylan accusing the former stepfather of being on the loose posted on Nicholas Kristof’s blog, on the website of New York Times.

    It’s been witch hunt for Allen ever since. With the biography About nothing, Theseus’ ship – rejected by Hachette after Ronan’s protests, Amazon Studios which snatched the contract from 68 million dollars, the films that do not come out in the United States and the docuseries Allen v. Farrowbroadcast in Italy on Sky: a non-contradictory version of Woody’s pedophilia. A product defined by Allen as “full of falsehoods”.

    Alec Baldwin and Woody Allen know each other very well. The director directed it in Alice, To Rome With Love And Blue Jasmine. And, perhaps, the main motivation for the launch of this direct Instagram lies precisely in the will to give the filmmaker the opportunity to better explain his version of events.

    But not only. Perhaps Baldwin (after the murder involuntary by Halyna Hutchinsdirector of photography for the film Rust), also wants to explain his version, which also includes the allegations of assault and harassment after a dispute in a parking lot in 2018 – in which he pleaded guilty, agreeing to take a one-day course for the anger management.
