Show Description:

Rewriting History is a series of shorts that bring to life a surprising vision of a world we could have been living in. Each short is packaged in the style of a news bulletin and illustrated with mocked-up news footage featuring look-alikes, fake government information films, mock commercials, and doctored news headlines. They are peppered with talking head interviews from experts and celebrities who shed light on how history could have happened differently and what the implications would have been.
