Storyline

Before Leibovitz, there was Jini... Her Aim Is True brings together musicians and rock photographers in an inspiring and unforgettable journey revealing unlikely rock 'n' roll photographer, Jini Dellaccio who visualized punk before it had a name and embodied indie before it was cool. In 1964, a middle-aged Dellaccio began hanging out with raucous garage bands in her backyard, creating innovative album covers. Soon she was capturing unprecedented portraits of Neil Young and early performances by The Who, Rolling Stones, Mitch Ryder and Mamas & Papas. An anthem for individual creativity, the film celebrates a legacy lost and found as it traces Dellaccio's ingenuity, spirit and style through participants in a gritty music subculture that like, Dellaccio, would set the bar for their descendants.

Music and photography done well. What more could you want?
18 December 2013 | by sandersonhSee all my reviews

I feel fortunate to have seen this movie. What a joy. The music, the photographs, the rock legends, the trip back into the 60's alone are reasons to watch the film. Add the iconic 92 year-old star and you have a distinctive slice of American history. Appealing across generations, this movie works at numerous levels—historical, artistic, gender roles and self-actualization to name a few . Watching an active 92 year old who is sharp as a tack makes this baby boomer wonder what I will do for the next 30 years. To see a 49 year-old re-invent herself is inspiring and a lesson in life. What is inside us if we just set if free? If you are looking for an entertaining and worthwhile film, this is it.
