The third episode of HBO's four-part documentary Allen v Farrow features Mia Farrow confronting ex-boyfriend Woody Allen in a taped phone call about Dylan Farrow’s sexual assault allegations.

The call, which was recorded around the time of the abuse allegations, has Farrow accusing Allen of abusing a then 7-year-old Dylan, asking, “How could you do that to her?”

“I know what Dylan tells me,” she continues “You've told me nothing but lies. Dylan tells the truth and consistently.”

In response, Allen can be heard saying, “But you know that I didn't....”

“No, I don't know that, Woody,” Farrow responds. “I've always, always been worried about you and Dylan.”

Farrow goes on to say that “she’s not all right, Woody,” describing how Dylan had been behaving in the aftermath of the alleged abuse. “She's scared of you, and you hurt her.”

“If you heard her, you would weep inside, and you would just want to be dead, because I don't know how you can live with what you did,” Mia said during the call.

Speaking as an adult, the second instalment of Allen v Farrow featured Dylan recalling being in the attic with Allen saying: “We were in the TV room and he reached behind me and touched my butt and then he told me to come up to the attic with him. I remember laying there on my stomach and my back was to him so I couldn’t see what was going on.”

“I felt trapped. He was saying things like we’re gonna go to Paris together, you’re gonna be in all my movies. Then he sexually assaulted me. I remember just focusing on my brother’s train set and then he just stopped. He was done. And we just went downstairs.”
