Woody Allen celebrated in Buenos Aires

Text size Aa Aa

Woody Allen is being honoured in an exhibition in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires as he faces continued child molestation accusations by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. He denies the charges.

Entitled ‘We love Woody so much’, the multimedia show by Argentinian artist Hugo Echarri features paintings, drawings, photos and videos that celebrate Allen’s comedic talent and tormented film characters.

“I thought it would be interested to have an exhibition about Woody Allen. He has an extensive body of work and many of his characters are very plastic and they seduced me. There was plenty of material to make an exhibition,” says Hugo Echarri.

Allen’s films span five decades, starting with ‘What’s New Pussycat?’ in 1965 to his latest movie ‘Blue Jasmine’ starring Cate Blanchett, which has received three Oscar nominations.

With a total of 24 nods, Woody Allen has received more Academy Award nominations than any other screenwriter.

The exhibition also takes a look at his passion for jazz music which features prominently in his movie’s soundtracks.

“We love Woody so much” runs in Buenos Aires until 6 March.
