Our THE OTHER SIDE OF HISTORY block entertains and educates about the past you may not know about using dramatic stories inspired by true heroic events, authentic documentaries, and even one tall tale you can't read about anywhere because it's not quite true.

"Macy's Goes to War" is a fictional satirical short black and white "Washingtone News" newsreel from 1942 telling the story of FDR's call for much needed scrap rubber and his phone call to Mr Macy resulting in Macy's Department Store's vital contribution to the US war effort. The film seamlessly blends new black and white scenes and original archival footage with inserted 2D animation to create a humorous and fun new take on actual history.
