‘I Am Heath Ledger’ Brings All The Feels For The Upcoming Doco

January 22nd, 2008. I don’t know about you, but I remember the exact time and place that I was in when I found out about Heath Ledger passing away. It was a very sad day as Australia lost it’s best actor to an accidental drug overdose.

This documentary made by Spike TV recounts the amazing life of Heath Ledger and the friendships he forged along the way. It will feature never-before-seen footage shot by Ledger himself which paints a chilling account on the young actors life through his own eyes, as well as a behind the scenes look at how Ledger transformed himself into a psychotic criminal clown for The Dark Knight.

The documentary will feature many interviews with Ledgers family, childhood friends as well as fellow actors and directors Ledger has worked with such as, Emile Hirsch, Naomi Watts, Ben Mendelsohn, Ang Lee, Ben Harper and many more.

I Am Heath Ledger will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23rd, Select theatres on May 3rd and the Spike TV premiere on May 17th.

R.I.P Heath, We still miss you.
