Argentine art exhibit celebrates Woody Allen


| Zoom

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - While filmmaker Woody Allen deals with a scandal in New York, fans are celebrating him in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

"We love Woody so much" is a new exhibit of paintings, drawings, photos and videos that celebrate Allen's comedic talent and tormented characters.

Dylan Farrow accused the filmmaker of sexually abusing her decades ago when Woody Allen was going through a nasty separation with her adoptive mother Mia Farrow. Allen has long denied it and authorities declined to charge him with any crime. Some of the Farrows renewed the accusation when Allen was nominated for another Oscar this year. Others have stood by him.

"These accusations haven't been proven, but his life's work has been proven," artist Hugo Echarri told The Associated Press. "It will remain and will forever be admired."
