We are happy to support this year's Human Rights Watch Film Festival running now until June 24th.

This year’s festival includes five films, which tackle critical questions on the experiences of transitional justice and international law, and how to best promote human rights in the wake of man-made disasters. Of particular interest is  a film about a Guantánamo Bay detainee:

YOU DON'T LIKE THE TRUTH - 4 DAYS INSIDE GUANTANAMO
Presented in association with New York Civil Liberties Union, and WITNESS.

You Don’t Like the Truth – 4 Days Inside Guantanamo is a shocking documentary based on security camera footage from an encounter in Guantanamo Bay between a team of Canadian intelligence agents and Canadian citizen Omar Khadr, then a 16- year-old detainee. This unique depiction of Omar Khadr’s interrogation offers an unusual
insight into a world where “the truth” itself is often negotiated.
