Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Evening. I’m sitting in a smaller, late 30s theater with about 75 shut good friends and spouse and children of the late Jessi Combs, planning to enjoy a private leading screening of the approaching Documentary film about her life, The Fastest Female on Earth. The movie actually reveals Jessi’s own and community existence, and her quest to crack the all-out land speed record for a lady, to begin with set in 1976 by famous stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed more than seven several years, The Quickest Woman on Earth chronicles the incredible everyday living of specialist racer and Tv set character Jessi Combs. Seamlessly mixing inspiration and heartbreak with pleasure and tragedy, this attribute documentary throws viewers immediately into the cockpit for Jessi’s remarkable endeavor – and the selling price that she in the end paid out for accomplishment.”
All I can say is that this movie is very well-designed, partaking and entertaining, however utterly gut-wrenching to watch… akin to observing young family members board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it is gonna conclude. The filmmakers were being close good friends who documented every move of Jessi’s inspirational daily life and the film also answered many burning thoughts that I had about the incident, and particulars of what specifically took place on her very last run for glory in the jet-powered North American Eagle. If you have the prospect, this film is incredibly significantly well worth the check out.
Relaxation in Peace and God Velocity, Jessi.
The film premiers on HBO Max on Oct 20th.
