Canada’s Top Ten: Guantanamo’s Child: Omar Khadr

Sat, Jan 23 / 7 pm
Directed by Patrick Reed & Michelle Shephard
2015, Canada, 80 min
English & Arabic w/ English subtitles

In July of 2002, Toronto-born 15-year-old Omar Khadr was wounded and captured in Afghanistan by US forces and sent to the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Considered by some to be child soldier and accused by many others of terrorism, Khadr would find his next 13 years a long, torturous battle for freedom. Featuring unprecedented access to former fellow inmates, family members, and government officials, this documentary acquaints us with an incredibly resilient youth who grew up in a tragic and mind-boggling situation.

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival is generously sponsored by IATSE 856 and Radio Canada Manitoba.
