A few days ago Konstantina Voulgaris re-published the following 2015 article by her brother The Boy on her anarchist news blog Hit & Run:

This reblogging of the 2015 article just-oh-so-happened to coincide with Ronan Farrow’s public statements in The Hollywood Reporter wherein he confirmed that Woody Allen molested his sister Dylan Farrow and subsequently ran a cover-up of the scandal with the help of Hollywood, the American mainstream media and an army of lawyers, psychologists and publicists:

Quoting from The Hollywood Reporter, these are the heartfelt comments from a brother unapologetically standing up for his sister in a public forum and finally speaking truth to Hollywood’s power to cover up child abuse and to allow pedophiles to thrive in an atmosphere of virtual impunity:

I believe my sister. This was always true as a brother who trusted her, and, even at 5 years old, was troubled by our father’s strange behavior around her: climbing into her bed in the middle of the night, forcing her to suck his thumb – behavior that had prompted him to enter into therapy focused on his inappropriate conduct with children prior to the allegations.

But more importantly, I’ve approached the case as an attorney and a reporter, and found her allegations to be credible. The facts are persuasive and well documented. I won’t list them again here, but most have been meticulously reported by journalist Maureen Orth in Vanity Fair. The only final legal disposition is a custody ruling that found Woody Allen’s behavior “grossly inappropriate” and stressed that “measures must be taken to protect [Dylan].”

Here is exactly what charges not being pursued looked like in my sister’s case in 1993: The prosecutor met with my mother and sister. Dylan already was deeply traumatized – by the assault and the subsequent legal battle that forced her to repeat the story over and over again. (And she did tell her story repeatedly, without inconsistency, despite the emotional toll it took on her.) The longer that battle, the more grotesque the media circus surrounding my family grew. My mother and the prosecutor decided not to subject my sister to more years of mayhem. In a rare step, the prosecutor announced publicly that he had “probable cause” to prosecute Allen, and attributed the decision not to do so to “the fragility of the child victim.”

My mother still feels it was the only choice she could make to protect her daughter. But it is ironic: My mother’s decision to place Dylan’s well-being above all else became a means for Woody Allen to smear them both.”

Additionally, read here what Ronan Farrow says about the role of the new media in exposing Hollywood pedophiles while the old media were busy running their cover-ups for them. What is particularly disturbing is that in Greece it’s actually the new media – websites like Flix.gr, Hitandrun.gr, etc – that are basically running the Woody Allen celebratory distraction like a chorus of cheerleaders, because these Athenian cinephile film-nerds have made it acceptable for Greek hipsters in general to openly flirt with pedophilia (the evidence of this is all over the Greek part of Facebook, with casual pedophilia being posted all over the place and Alexander posting incest child rape-jokes on his timeline such as: “O Woody Allen γαμάει,  ρώτα την κόρη του.”, which is really sickening to behold), and consider Woody Allen a hero exactly because he gets to molest his own daughter with virtual impunity, making him the ultimate badass in the eyes of these Athenian pedophilia-apologists:

But the old-school media’s slow evolution has helped to create a culture of impunity and silence. Amazon paid millions to work with Woody Allen, bankrolling a new series and film. Actors, including some I admire greatly, continue to line up to star in his movies. “It’s not personal,” one once told me. But it hurts my sister every time one of her heroes like Louis C.K., or a star her age, like Miley Cyrus, works with Woody Allen. Personal is exactly what it is – for my sister, and for women everywhere with allegations of sexual assault that have never been vindicated by a conviction.

Tonight, the Cannes Film Festival kicks off with a new Woody Allen film. There will be press conferences and a red-carpet walk by my father and his wife (my sister). He’ll have his stars at his side – Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Jesse Eisenberg. They can trust that the press won’t ask them the tough questions. It’s not the time, it’s not the place, it’s just not done.

That kind of silence isn’t just wrong. It’s dangerous. It sends a message to victims that it’s not worth the anguish of coming forward. It sends a message about who we are as a society, what we’ll overlook, who we’ll ignore, who matters and who doesn’t.

Greek cinephiles and film-industry people are obsessed with this sack of filth because the Greek Minister of Culture appeared on TV a few years ago claiming that Woody Allen had supposedly expressed an interest in shooting his next movie in Greece. There is no actual public evidence of this whatsoever, but ever since that interview Greek cinephiles been doing one tribute to Woody Allen after another in the hopes that Woody Allen will see these tributes (yeah right) and will notice how much he is worshipped in Greece (like he gives a shit) and will basically hire these Athenian hipsters to be on the Greek film-crew of his next film (keep dreaming, he will probably just bring in his own crew from the States). In other words, these Greek cinephile hipsters are willing to associate themselves with someone who used his power to cover up his incest and pedophilia just for the sake of being able to list having worked on a Woody Allen movie on their IMDB profiles. This is the face of moral bankruptcy in Greece, which extends beyond the film-scene and into all avenues of society where corruption reigns supreme.

I still have somewhere in my archive a printscreen image of the TV interview that the then Greek minister of culture gave with one of the commercial TV channels during which she spoken favourably about Woody Allen coming to Greece for a filmshoot. I can’t find that still right now, but if I do locate it I will upload it here later, because everyone needs to see how a minister got on television and told the people of a country that she was looking forward to bringing in a child abuser to shoot a film, all in the name of kickstarting the Greek economy and profiling Greece abroad. This continuous stream of pedophilia-apologetics is completely unacceptable and must be condemned.
