'Guantanamo's Child' in Eindhoven and Maastricht
In May, MtM On Tour presents: 'Guantanamo's Child: Omar Khadr'. Tonight you can go see the documentary in Natlab, Eindhoven at 19.00 hrs and in Lumiere, Maastricht at 19.30 hrs. After the screening a debate will take place.
When he was fifteen years old Omar Khadr was captured by American soldiers and locked up in the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. There he underwent years of torture. Thirteen years later, following transfer to a Canadian prison, he is unexpectedly released in May 2015. From his new home, he and his attorney look back on his role in the war and the atrocities of the prison camp. Was Omar just a naive child or a ruthless terrorist? Can we really hold a child accountable for his actions?
