Dolly Parton: Here I Am
2019 | Documentary | 90 minutes | English
This biographical documentary examines the life and career of Dolly Parton. It includes interviews with friends, companions, business associates and the artist herself. Dolly had a humble upbringing in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. She had her big break with her Bluegrass albums of the late ’90s and became a star when she appeared on the Porter Wagoner Show. This led to multiple Billboard and Country Music Awards. She also achieved excellence as a songwriter, a philanthropist. As this documentary clearly illustrates, there never was and probably never will be another Dolly Parton.

DOLLY PARTON: HERE I AM is about Dolly, arguably the greatest living American artist. The film also shows why that judgment is unarguable, over and over again. An artist, philanthropist, feminist and role model, Parton continues to show the world how to use and then transcend your image as long as it is for the greater good.
Dolly Parton has often been seen as a caricature. And it’s an impression she herself has done little to discourage. But for far too long this persona has obscured the real Dolly. DOLLY PARTON: HERE I AM is a major feature-length documentary that uncovers a very different character—a Dolly that is no less extraordinary, but far more authentic and far more surprising.
