Synopsis

Four Days Inside Guantánamo is a documentary based on security camera footage from the Guantánamo Bay prison.

This encounter between a team of Canadian intelligence agents and a child detainee in Guantánamo has never before been seen. Based on seven hours of video footage recently declassified by the Canadian courts this documentary delves into the unfolding high-stakes game of cat and mouse between captor and captive over a four day period. Maintaining the surveillance camera style this film analyzes the political, legal and scientific aspects of a forced dialogue.

Reviews (8)

  • "The film is a stinging indictment on US tactics at Guantanamo and, perhaps worse still, a coruscating look at Canada's role in this specific matter." 4.5Eye for Film
  • "This film recording the interrogation of a young Canadian in Guantánamon is a brutal document of modern cruelty" 4The Guardian
  • "Luc Côté and Patricio Henriquez’s exposé of the sinister interrogation methods used by our ‘civilised’ governments is worthy of 100 minutes of anyone’s time." 4Time Out
  • "Avoiding the temptation to re-try Khadr on film, this exposes the dynamics of the interrogation sessions and lets Khadr’s coerced confession speak for itself in making his guilty plea bargain seem all the more shockingly unjust." 4Empire
  • "Secretly recorded footage from a Guantanamo Bay interrogation of 16-year-old Canadian citizen Omar Khadr forms the core of this compelling doc." 4Total Film
  • "A powerful, moving and still very pertinent film " – Screendaily
  • "Luc Cote and Patricio Henrique have made one of the most harrowing documentaries about Guantanamo Bat without showing a drop of blood" 4Cinema Eye
  • "It is an appalling tale of injustice that reflects badly on both the US administration that has incarcerated him and the Canadian government" – The Observer
