The World Turned Upside Down

Haut de la page

In the early 1780s, just following the American Revolution, about half of the hundred thousand United Empire Loyalists who wished to remain aligned with England fled northward to re-settle in British North America, now Canada. This historical dramatization, based on the account of Hannah Ingraham, eleven years old at the time of her family's flight to Canada, was filmed entirely on location at the King's Landing Historical Settlement near Fredericton, New Brunswick. The film vividly recreates the persecution and hardships the Loyalists faced as they built a new life in the sparsely populated wilderness. Valuable for Canadian studies, history and social studies, the film will also be useful as a catalyst for discussion of moral and ethical issues.

1985, 24 min 35 s
