I Am Heath Ledger

An intimate look at one of Australia’s most fascinating acting talents, I AM HEATH LEDGER celebrates the life and art of Heath Ledger through the lens of his own camera as he films and often performs in his own personal journey.

Ledger was always enthusiastically capturing his life’s experiences on camera, and this documentary is charmingly filled with footage the actor shot himself. Augmented with excerpts of his greatest performances, interviews with friends and family, including Ben Mendelsohn, Naomi Watts, Ang Lee, and Ben Harper, these elements come together to draw a portrait of an artist whose journey was tragically cut short before all his talents had the chance to fully shine. As adept behind the camera as he was in front of it, I AM HEATH LEDGER allows the actor to turn the lens on his own life, and shows us the man behind the icon.
