An intimate portrait of how a teenager from a Toronto suburb became one of the first U.S. war crimes trial since the prosecution of Nazi commanders. Khadr is the only juvenile ever tried for war crimes. It gives Omar Khadr the opportunity to speak for himself on camera, for the first time.
The documentary takes us from his childhood traveling between a Canadian suburb and Peshawar at the height of the jihad against the Soviets, to Afghanistan and the homes of Al Qaeda’s elite, into the notorious U.S. prisons at Bagram and Guantanamo Bay and back again to Canada.

Press

  • John Doyle Globe and Mail
    The doc has formidable restraint, very carefully presenting views about Khadr, his actions and his treatment in Guantanamo and by the Harper government
  • Now Toronto
    The result is a complex, nuanced and surprisingly affecting documentary that’s bound to be denounced as propaganda by people who haven’t watched it.
  • Hollywood Repoter
    A sympathetic introduction to a man who grew up under the worst possible conditions.
  • Strictly Docs
    More than just a stirring personal story, Guantanamo’s Child is also a cautionary tale of how fear and suspicion can infect our values and stand in the way of our fight for freedom
