Watching Allen v. Farrow? Learn About Our Services for Rape and Sexual Assault Survivors

Allen v. Farrow Safe Horiozn Services for Rape and Sexual Assault Survivors
March 2021

Investigative filmmakers and past Safe Horizon Champion Award Honorees Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering and Amy Herdy recently released Allen v. Farrow on HBO; a documentary about the startling childhood sexual abuse allegations against Woody Allen. The four-part documentary series “examines the effects of trauma on a family, and features prominent cultural voices exploring Allen’s body of work in a broader context and reflecting on how public revelations about the personal lives of artists can lead to re-evaluations of their work.” 

While documentaries such as Allen v. Farrow empower survivors to tell their stories, their content can also trigger survivors of similar abuse. In this post, we share Safe Horizon resources, and articles you can use to read about abuse.
