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.

We Need More Female Heroes
9 December 2013 | by kathleen-rabilSee all my reviews

I am passionate about 'Herstory,' the perspective of history that holds up the accomplishments of women who were risk-takers, ahead of their time, and willing to forge the way for those who come after. I think there are too many stories that have been lost and am excited to see Karen Whitehead pick up the baton and champion one such lost hero. Karen's love for Jini, for her humility and grace shine through. Kudo's to Karen for taking to risk to tell this story about an unlikely hero that should inspire us all!

Hat's off to Jini, for following her heart and recognizing the promise of youth. And regards, to her husband, who supported her efforts wholeheartedly.
