Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night time. I’m sitting down in a compact, late 30s theater with about 75 near close friends and relatives of the late Jessi Combs, getting ready to check out a personal premier screening of the approaching Documentary film about her daily life, The Swiftest Female on Earth. The film truthfully reveals Jessi’s individual and general public everyday living, and her quest to crack the all-out land speed report for a woman, to begin with set in 1976 by legendary stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed more than 7 years, The Swiftest Girl on Earth chronicles the amazing everyday living of qualified racer and Television identity Jessi Combs. Seamlessly blending inspiration and heartbreak with pleasure and tragedy, this element documentary throws viewers instantly into the cockpit for Jessi’s fantastic endeavor – and the value that she eventually paid out for achievement.”
All I can say is that this film is perfectly-made, participating and entertaining, however totally intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to looking at young people board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna conclude. The filmmakers have been close good friends who documented each and every move of Jessi’s inspirational everyday living and the film also answered a lot of burning questions that I experienced about the incident, and facts of what exactly transpired on her previous operate for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the possibility, this motion picture is incredibly significantly well worth the enjoy.
Rest in Peace and God Velocity, Jessi.
The film premiers on HBO Max on October 20th.
