Notes for Judging: Every car fan knows that Bertha Benz was the first woman to ever drive a car. But for International Women's Day 2023, we wanted to send a message that is bigger than our company history. A message that women all over the world can identify with. Unfortunately. For centuries, women have been making history as the first, the best or the only ones to achieve something. They are celebrated because they are exceptional. We have had enough of these stories. And asked ourselves instead: What if a successful woman was no longer an exception – but one of many?
The provocative message from our female protagonists: "I don't want to make history. I don't want to be the only woman. I want to be one of many." Director Fiona Jane Burgess stages our message in a school. Where we encounter stereotypical role models for the first time, the film questions them. The look at successful women from the past is initially reminiscent of typical "empowerment adverts" – but then comes the decisive twist. The film skilfully picks up on the feminist zeitgeist and sheds light on the topic of equal opportunities in a surprising way. Provocative, clear and yet sensitive.
