Her Aim Is True: Library will screen documentary of late rock ‘n’ roll photographer Dellaccio

Tacoma Public Library will screen a documentary film about the late Jini Dellaccio, who was a notable photographer who documented rock ‘n’ roll in its early years.

Her Aim Is True brings together musicians and photographers to reveal the unlikely rock ‘n’ roll photographer Dellaccio, who visualized punk before it had a name and embodied indie before it was cool. Dellaccio was a daring and innovative composer who worked with rockers such as The Sonics and Neil Young, and captured early performances by bands such as The Who and The Rolling Stones. For the first time in 50 years, Dellaccio shared her story and archive with the filmmaker Karen Whitehead, and reunited with musicians and rock photographers to trace the roots of her artistry and life.

Dellaccio passed away in 2014 at the age of 97.

The film was released in 2013 and earned the Audience Choice Award at the Tacoma Film Festival later that year.

Her Aim Is True will be screened at 2 p.m. on Sat., April 4, in the Olympic Room of the main branch of the Tacoma Public Library, located at 1102 Tacoma Ave. S., in Tacoma. More information is available online here. More information about the film is available online at heraimistruemovie.com.
