HBO has just aired the third of its explosive four-part docuseries 'Allen v. Farrow,' which details the allegations of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving Dylan, his then seven-year-old adoptive daughter, as well as his subsequent custody battle with Mia Farrow and the controversial aftermath in the years that followed. And there are certainly mixed feelings about it among the family. 

The third episode features Mia, actress and mother of 14, speaking publicly for the first time in decades about her former partner, Woody Allen. Filmmaker Amy Ziering says in the episode that Mia did not want to participate: "For people who think, 'Oh, she is out there, and wants [the attention],' absolutely not. It was like dragging someone."

Ronan Farrow also congratulated his sister Dylan as she too appears for a first-person interview in the series, sharing previously unseen information regarding her sexual abuse allegations against Allen. 

Though he hasn't directly commented, a spokesperson for the disgraced director released a statement which said, "These documentarians had no interest in the truth. Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to put together a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods."
