Bertha Benz / The Journey that Changed Everything

 24 Add to collection

Released on International Women's Day, Dirty Soup founder Raife Burchell, music supervised Mercedes Benz epic new commercial for Anorak and Antoni Berlin. 'The Journey that Changed Everything' is a four-minute film honouring Bertha Benz, the wife and business partner of Mercedes-Benz founder and automobile inventor Carl Benz.

Sebastian Strasser's film tells the story of her journey from Mannheim to Pforzheim, Germany, in 1888. Bertha took her two sons on the106km/65-mile trip - determined to prove the potential of her husband's invention - at a time when people were sceptical, even fearful of it.

After an extensive research period, the musical direction was settled upon, and Raife called on the composing talents of Grammy-winning, Emmy, and Bafta-nominated Lorne Balfe and Steffen Thum.

The film documents an empowering tale of triumph and self-belief, and Raife is thrilled to have been part of bringing Bertha's ground-breaking journey to life.
