I Am Heath Ledger is a feature length documentary celebrating the life of Heath Ledger: actor, artist and icon. The documentary provides an intimate look at Heath Ledger through the lens of his own camera as he films and often performs in his own personal journey - extravagant in gesture and in action. It was his creative energy and unshakable willingness to take risks that instilled such an extraordinarily deep love and affection in the people that entered his life. Heath’s artistic nature and expression set him apart from the Hollywood mainstream, vaulted him to stardom and endeared him to the world.

I Am Heath Ledger premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday, April 23rd.

▪ Remembering Heath, who passed away, 7 years ago today, on 22 January 2008. Love you so much, and wish you were here with us… You are deeply missed. Rest in Peace.
