September's Cinema Akil screening is a Vikram Jayanti-directed documentary that explores the six decade-long career of Loretta Lynn, the reigning matriarch of the country music scene. Still touring the country at 83 years old, Lynn continues to influence the next generation of country singer-songwriters. Anyone familiar with the 1908 Oscar-winning movie 'The Coal Miner's Daughter' will know her rags-to-riches story that embodies the American dream. From her pro-feminist lyrics of the 60s and 70s through to her Grammy-winning, bestselling album with rock icon Jack White, released when she was 72 years old, Lynn is a true legend. Jack White along with Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert, Michael Apted and Sissy Spacek have all contributed to this fascinating documentary that lays bare her roots in the hardscrabble coalmining mountains of Appalachian Eastern Kentucky through to her glittering presence on the Nashville stage.
