The film about Omar Khadr is titled Guantanamo's Child. It's description on TIFF's website reads as follows, and the trailer is below:

"Omar Khadr, the Canadian citizen who was captured by American forces in Afghanistan in 2002 and spent a decade imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, tells his own story in his own words, in this documentary portrait from directors Patrick Reed and Michelle Shephard."
