Allen v. Farrow

Allen v. Farrow is a look behind the years of sensational headlines to reveal the private story of the accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving, his 7-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow. This story gains new perspective now being retold in the #metoo era where allegations of this kind of assault are seen in a far different light, perhaps, than when they originally occurred.

I was privileged to serve on the music team under composer Michael Abels. Over the course of the last few months, we’ve hunkered down through the Covid season to help the filmmakers, Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, put together the pieces drawing from new interviews as well as never-before-seen footage. The score itself weaves intricate ambient textures featuring piano, guitars, and a string/woodwind orchestra.

Allen v. Farrow is garnering lots of polarizing and controversial responses; for those interested I will link to The Awful Intimacy of Allen v. Farrow (The Atlantic), The Biggest Takeaways from Allen v. Farrow (The Cut), Roger Ebert’s review, Allen v. Farrow Digs Deep Into a Tale of Celebrity, Power, and Silence (NPR), Woody Allen, Soon-Yi Previn Respond to Allen v. Farrow Filmmakers: “These Documentarians Had No Interest in the Truth” (Hollywood Reporter), Deadline’s take, and What to Watch For (Bob Weide’s take).

Allen v. Farrow streams in four episodes and can be found on HBO here. The trailer is embedded below:

I think it’s safe to say when Instagram tries to launch their nth new feature copied from another rival platform, their chances of success now become 1/n.

An interesting comment in light of the fact that the work of millions of human creators has been vacuumed up by OpenAI without consent or compensation.
