Khadr took part in a 20 minute long question and answer session following the film, which included prolonged standing ovations for the Edneys and for Khadr.
When asked how he managed to survive spending almost half his life incarerated, Khadr said he dealt the pain as it came, not allowing it to fester inside himself.
“I stopped putting faith in specific things,” he said. “I just looked at general things and one of those things is the goodness in people, and even if I was hurt by a particular person, I knew there was good behind that pain – so that could always help me and it made it easier for me (to live with it).”
