Guantanamo's Child is a Canadian documentary film, released in 2015. Directed by Patrick Reed and Michelle Shephard based on Shephard's 2009 book Guantanamo's Child: The Untold Story of Omar Khadr, the film profiles Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen whose conviction on disputed war crimes charges and incarceration at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp has been a prominent political issue in Canada.
The film was produced by White Pine Pictures, in association with Al Jazeera and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. This documentary is an expanded version of a television program that aired on CBC in May 2015 called Omar Khadr: Out of the Shadows. A version of the film aired on Al Jazeera English in June 2015. It had its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. At the 2015 Calgary International Film Festival, the film won the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature. In December, the film was announced as part of TIFF's annual Canada's Top Ten screening series of the so-called ten best Canadian feature films of the year.
