Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night time. I’m sitting in a little, late 30s theater with about 75 close pals and household of the late Jessi Combs, making ready to look at a personal leading screening of the impending Documentary film about her life, The Quickest Female on Earth. The film truthfully reveals Jessi’s own and public existence, and her quest to split the all-out land velocity report for a woman, initially set in 1976 by famous stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed more than seven a long time, The Fastest Girl on Earth chronicles the amazing life of qualified racer and Tv set personality Jessi Combs. Seamlessly blending inspiration and heartbreak with pleasure and tragedy, this feature documentary throws viewers immediately into the cockpit for Jessi’s excellent endeavor – and the rate that she in the end paid out for results.”
All I can say is that this movie is very well-made, participating and entertaining, but completely intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to looking at youthful people board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna conclude. The filmmakers were near pals who documented each individual phase of Jessi’s inspirational existence and the motion picture also answered a lot of burning concerns that I had about the incident, and facts of what particularly occurred on her past operate for glory in the jet-powered North American Eagle. If you have the prospect, this movie is quite a great deal really worth the view.
Relaxation in Peace and God Speed, Jessi.
The film premiers on HBO Max on Oct 20th.
