Two Northwest Music Documentaries Share the Screen

November 21, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Rialto Theatre
901 Broadway
Tacoma, WA 98402

The first film, Her Aim is True, directed by Karen Whitehead, tells the story of unlikely rock n’ roll photographer and former Gig Harbor resident Jini Dellaccio, who visualized punk before it had a name and embodied indie before it was cool. Musicians and rock photographers join Jini Dellaccio on an inspiring tour of her ingenuity and style, with a soundtrack and interviews that capture the Pacific Northwest’s vibrant music subculture.

Following Her Aim is True is Tacoma filmmaker and artist Isaac Olsen’s documentary titled Strictly Sacred: The Story of Girl Trouble, which chronicles the three-decade history of the legendary Tacoma-based garage rock band defined by their uncompromising DIY aesthetic. Utilizing decades of home movies, show footage, and interviews with former collaborators, including Neko Case and Calvin Johnson, Strictly Sacred gives an intimate glimpse into Girl Trouble’s world.

Filmmakers Karen Whitehead and Isaac Olsen will be present at the event.
