The two-part drama-documentary BROADSIDE tells the story of how the English invasion of Dutch Manhattan sparked the first global naval war. BROADSIDE employs talented actors in 17th-century settings, large-scale re-enactments, animation and scholarly interviews to capture the drama and intrigue as two nations fight for prosperity abroad and face demands for religious freedom at home.
