Størmerlige Films is making a feature-length documentary about the loyalists of the American Revolution and their legacy. Titled "The Good Americans," from a quote by British general James Robertson, it is inspired by a new book by the University of South Carolina Press, published in February 2019, called "The Consequences of Loyalism: Essays in Honor of Robert C. Calhoon," edited by Rebecca Brannon and Joseph Moore. Produced and directed by Tad Størmer, a Johns Hopkins University lecturer and documentary filmmaker, the movie uses primary sources, artifacts, interviews with scholars, and innovative graphics to tell the diverse, multicultural story of the loyalists - what drove them and what they made of their worlds after the American Revolution, especially in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario. It is also about what their absence meant for the nation that they left behind, the United States, which was changed forever by the loss of as many as one-fifth of its pre-war free and enslaved population.
