Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Evening. I’m sitting in a modest, late 30s theater with about 75 near pals and family members of the late Jessi Combs, getting ready to watch a private premier screening of the future Documentary movie about her lifetime, The Swiftest Female on Earth. The motion picture truthfully reveals Jessi’s own and general public lifestyle, and her quest to crack the all-out land speed document for a female, in the beginning established in 1976 by famous stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed above seven yrs, The Fastest Woman on Earth chronicles the remarkable daily life of experienced racer and Tv identity Jessi Combs. Seamlessly mixing inspiration and heartbreak with joy and tragedy, this feature documentary throws viewers specifically into the cockpit for Jessi’s fantastic endeavor – and the value that she in the end paid out for results.”
All I can say is that this movie is effectively-made, participating and entertaining, yet utterly intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to looking at youthful people board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it is gonna conclude. The filmmakers were near pals who documented each individual phase of Jessi’s inspirational daily life and the movie also answered lots of burning questions that I experienced about the accident, and specifics of what exactly occurred on her final operate for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the opportunity, this motion picture is quite substantially really worth the observe.
Rest in Peace and God Speed, Jessi.
The motion picture premiers on HBO Max on October 20th.
