HER AIM IS TRUE tells the incredible story of Jini Dellaccio, the first woman photographer of rock 'n' roll in its early years. Snubbing convention, Dellaccio reinvented herself in the mid 1960s as one of the most daring and innovative composers in the field, working with legendary rockers from The Sonics to Neil Young, and even capturing early performances by bands such as The Who and The Rolling Stones. For the first time in 50 years, Dellaccio shares her story and stunning archive, reuniting with musicians and rock photographers for a riveting voyage tracing the roots of her avant-garde artistry and fearless life, including previous stints playing jazz saxophone on the road with all girl jazz bands and creating jaw-dropping portfolios for fashion models. With a soundtrack and interviews that capture the vibrant music subculture behind the "Northwest Sound", the film celebrates a legacy lost and found in an enduring story about love, music, indie spirits and breaking the rules. This award-winning documentary by British filmmaker Karen Whitehead, is also executive produced by Eddie Vedder ("Pearl Jam").
