Rock Photographer Jini Dellaccio: Her Aim Is True:
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.
