The new documentary I Am Heath Ledger provides a look at the late actor’s life and career. Produced and directed by filmmakers Derik Murray and Adrian Buitenhuis, the film had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.

One of Hollywood’s most gifted young actors, Ledger starred in break-out hits like Brokeback Mountain and The Dark Knight and quickly rose to fame before his tragic and unexpected death in 2008 at the age of 28.

The movie recounts his remarkable acting career, from his early days performing in Australia to his rapid rise in the Hollywood spotlight. The documentary also showcases footage captured through the lens of Ledger’s own camera, offering a unique look into his personal life. I Am Heath Ledger also features a wide range of interviews, from close friends and family members to industry colleagues including directors Ang Lee and Catherine Hardwicke; actors Naomi Watts, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, and Emile Hirsch; musicians Ben Harper, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), N’fa, and Grace Woodroofe; and the Ledger family.
