Trailer For Documentary ‘I Am Heath Ledger’ Released
  |  @   |  

Believe it or not, in less than a year it will be one decade since Heath Ledger died of an accidental overdose in New York. Later that year his unforgettable performance as the Joker was seen by the world when The Dark Knight was released, a performance that would lead to Ledger’s second Academy Award nomination (his first nomination being for his work in Brokeback Mountain), and eventually his first Oscar win.

As part of their “I Am” series, Spike has released a trailer for the upcoming documentary I Am Heath Ledger. The doc looks at the far too short life of the actor through a mixture of videos he filmed of himself, clips of his performances, and interviews with those who knew him.

Continue below to read a synopsis and watch the trailer.


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 will first premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23rd. It will then be released in limited theaters on May 3rd, before finally making its television premiere on Spike TV on May 17th.


A born director. A fearless actor. An unforgettable artist. I Am Heath Ledger premieres May 17th on Spike.

Spike original documentary series “I Am” is an inside look at the lives of extraordinary individuals as told by their inner-circles.
