Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night time. I’m sitting in a modest, late 30s theater with about 75 close pals and relatives of the late Jessi Combs, making ready to enjoy a non-public leading screening of the upcoming Documentary movie about her lifetime, The Swiftest Female on Earth. The film actually reveals Jessi’s particular and general public lifestyle, and her quest to split the all-out land velocity report for a lady, in the beginning established in 1976 by legendary stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed over seven several years, The Fastest Girl on Earth chronicles the extraordinary existence of qualified racer and Television set identity Jessi Combs. Seamlessly blending inspiration and heartbreak with joy and tragedy, this element documentary throws viewers directly into the cockpit for Jessi’s fantastic endeavor – and the price tag that she eventually paid out for results.”
All I can say is that this film is very well-created, partaking and entertaining, nevertheless utterly intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to viewing young people board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna end. The filmmakers were close mates who documented every single stage of Jessi’s inspirational life and the movie also answered lots of burning issues that I experienced about the incident, and information of what precisely happened on her very last run for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the option, this motion picture is very a lot value the view.
Rest in Peace and God Velocity, Jessi.
The film premiers on HBO Max on October 20th.
