You Don’t Like the Truth…

Luc Côté’s and Patricio Henriquez’ 2011 documentary You Don’t Like the Truth: 4 Days Inside Guantánamo centers its attention on the harrowing story of 15-year-old Omar Khadr, and his detainment at Guantánamo back in 2003. You won’t like the truth, not one bit. A more detailed synopsis can be read as follows (via TIFF):

“The story of Omar Khadr, the then-fifteen-year-old Canadian citizen captured in Afghanistan in 2003, remanded to custody at the notorious Guantanamo Bay detention camp and subsequently convicted of war crimes by the US Military Tribunal, has become a flashpoint for debate about the breakdown of democracy and basic human rights under the rubric of the “War on Terror.” Foregrounding the original recordings of Khadr’s interrogations, directors Patricio Henriquez and Luc Côté vividly examine and contextualize each telling moment through interviews and testimonials, creating a provocative and troubling document of war and justice post-9/11.”
