Spike TV has debuted the trailer for the upcoming doco I AM HEATH LEDGER on the late actors birthday which is today.. the trailer for the documentary looks fantastic with a mix of footage Heath shot himself to interviews with his friends. The documentary has its premiere on April 23 at the Tribeca film festival and on Spike TV May 17.
Told through excerpts of his greatest performances, interviews with friends and family (including Ben Mendelsohn, Naomi Watts, Ang Lee, and Ben Harper), and the lens of his own camera, I Am Heath Ledger is an intimate celebration of the actor, artist, and icon. An artist of exceptional depth and courage, Ledger was equally talented behind the camera. This stirring documentary paints a rich portrait of one of the great artists of his generation.
No word on an Australian release, lets hope sometime soon. Let us know your favourite Heath moment in film… mines a toss up between any moment in 10 Things I Hate about You and obviously his performance in entire The Dark Knight film.
Happy Birthday Heath.
