The Improbable Journey of Berta Benz, inspired by Mindy Bingham’s children’s book, Berta Benz and the Motorwagen, is an animated short film based on the true story of Berta Benz. Berta was the first person in history to successfully drive a motorized vehicle more than a mile, a feat which turned the tide for the motor car to become a part of our modern-day lives! Engaging content and HD animation tell the tale of her heroic contribution and journey that lead to the adoption of the automobile.
The Improbable Journey of Berta Benz won the Best in Fest- Animation Award from the 2013 LA Women's International Film Festival, the Breaking Traditions Achievement Award from the CTEEC, and the Myra P. Sadker Award.
