CAMP X-RAY is an upcoming indie drama film based on the temporary detention facility Camp X-Ray at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Directed and written by Peter Sattler, the film starring Kristen Stewart and Peyman Moaadi with John Carroll Lynch, Lane Garrison, and Joseph Julian Soria in supporting roles. It had its world premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in the U.S. dramatic competition category.
A young woman (Stewart) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots. But she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay instead, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. A story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.
