HBO revealed the official trailer for The Fastest Woman On Earth, the documentary captures the high-octane quest of professional racer and TV personality Jessi Combs to break land speed records in a field primarily dominated by men.
Directed by filmmakers Chris Otwell and Graham Suorsa, The Fastest Woman On Earth debuts Thursday, October 20 on HBO Max.
Filmed over more than seven years beginning in 2013, the documentary chronicles the extraordinary life of professional racer and TV personality Jessi Combs. Approached by a predominately male team of aviation enthusiasts to be the driver of a custom car built from a repurposed fighter jet, Jessi’s dream of breaking land speed records is suddenly within reach – but at what cost? As her body and relationships suffer, Jessi continues to strive for the “fastest woman” title, confronting each obstacle with unparalleled courage and audacity. Seamlessly blending inspiration and heartbreak with joy and tragedy, this feature documentary throws viewers directly into the cockpit for Jessi’s exceptional endeavor – and the price that she ultimately paid for success.
“Nine years in the making, The Fastest Woman On Earth is a deeply personal film for us because we are committed to telling an honest and unvarnished version of Jessi’s audacious and inspiring journey. She became a dear friend, and we are incredibly honored to share this documentary in hopes that it inspires courage both in everyday acts and envisioning a legacy for oneself.” – Filmmakers Chris Otwell and Graham Suorsa.
