Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night. I’m sitting in a modest, late 30s theater with about 75 near buddies and spouse and children of the late Jessi Combs, planning to look at a personal premier screening of the future Documentary film about her existence, The Fastest Female on Earth. The movie honestly reveals Jessi’s own and community lifetime, and her quest to crack the all-out land pace file for a lady, initially established in 1976 by legendary stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed in excess of seven several years, The Speediest Female on Earth chronicles the remarkable existence of skilled racer and Tv set individuality Jessi Combs. Seamlessly blending inspiration and heartbreak with pleasure and tragedy, this attribute documentary throws viewers right into the cockpit for Jessi’s outstanding endeavor – and the rate that she finally paid out for accomplishment.”
All I can say is that this movie is very well-built, partaking and entertaining, however totally gut-wrenching to watch… akin to viewing youthful family members board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna stop. The filmmakers were close close friends who documented each individual step of Jessi’s inspirational lifetime and the film also answered quite a few burning issues that I had about the accident, and details of what precisely took place on her previous operate for glory in the jet-powered North American Eagle. If you have the opportunity, this film is incredibly considerably really worth the watch.
Rest in Peace and God Velocity, Jessi.
The movie premiers on HBO Max on October 20th.
