Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night time. I’m sitting in a compact, late 30s theater with about 75 near mates and family members of the late Jessi Combs, preparing to view a personal premier screening of the future Documentary movie about her existence, The Fastest Female on Earth. The movie truthfully reveals Jessi’s particular and community lifestyle, and her quest to break the all-out land velocity file for a girl, originally established in 1976 by legendary stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed in excess of 7 a long time, The Swiftest Girl on Earth chronicles the extraordinary daily life of experienced racer and Tv set character Jessi Combs. Seamlessly mixing inspiration and heartbreak with joy and tragedy, this attribute documentary throws viewers specifically into the cockpit for Jessi’s remarkable endeavor – and the price that she ultimately paid for achievements.”
All I can say is that this film is well-made, partaking and entertaining, nonetheless utterly intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to seeing youthful households board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna close. The filmmakers have been shut mates who documented just about every move of Jessi’s inspirational lifestyle and the motion picture also answered numerous burning inquiries that I experienced about the accident, and aspects of what specifically took place on her past run for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the opportunity, this movie is pretty much really worth the watch.
Relaxation in Peace and God Pace, Jessi.
The film premiers on HBO Max on Oct 20th.
