Dolly Parton: Here I Am is the latest film from Bafta-winning producer/director, Francis Whately. With unprecedented access, it reveals the genius songwriter behind the rhinestones, the private individual who reveals almost everything if you take the time to explore the lyrics, & the modern feminist who doesn’t want to be called a feminist.
Talking about her on camera for the first time are Dolly’s musicians, co-writers and producers, in an exploration of why she is seen as one of the greatest songwriters of modern times.
Dolly personally takes viewers musically and lyrically though some of her greatest songs including The Bridge, I Will Always Love You and 9 to 5, revealing how they fit into her 50-year career.
Surrounded by friends and fellow stars is Dolly, the universally adored, global phenomenon in action, doing what she does best – being a star! Contributors to the film include Kylie Minogue, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Danny Nozell (Dolly’s manager), Charley Pride, Mac Davis, Chris Stapleton, Wayne Moss, music producers Linda Perry, Kent Wells and Val Garay, and band members Jerry Douglas, Carl Jackson, Charlie McCoy, Eddy Anderson, Lloyd Green, Mike Severs, Hargus ‘Pig’ Robbins and Stuart Duncan.

Justin Gorman: Executive Producer says…
“The Dolly Parton projects were incredibly important to Man Alive Entertainment and Halo completely understood the nuances of the shows. The film and the live special required many different aspects across the post production process and the outcome on both projects has been superb. We love and thank Halo for all their amazing help and support.”
