Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night time. I’m sitting in a modest, late 30s theater with about 75 shut good friends and household of the late Jessi Combs, planning to observe a private leading screening of the forthcoming Documentary film about her life, The Speediest Woman on Earth. The film honestly reveals Jessi’s personalized and general public lifestyle, and her quest to crack the all-out land velocity history for a woman, initially established in 1976 by legendary stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed over 7 yrs, The Fastest Female on Earth chronicles the remarkable daily life of qualified racer and Tv identity Jessi Combs. Seamlessly mixing inspiration and heartbreak with pleasure and tragedy, this element documentary throws viewers straight into the cockpit for Jessi’s remarkable endeavor – and the cost that she eventually paid for good results.”
All I can say is that this movie is nicely-designed, engaging and entertaining, nevertheless totally intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to looking at younger family members board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna finish. The filmmakers were close pals who documented each individual stage of Jessi’s inspirational lifetime and the movie also answered many burning queries that I had about the incident, and particulars of what particularly transpired on her previous operate for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the prospect, this film is extremely considerably truly worth the watch.
Relaxation in Peace and God Pace, Jessi.
The movie premiers on HBO Max on Oct 20th.
