The official trailer for “I am Heath Ledger” aired on what would have been the actor’s 38th birthday. Unfortunately, this phenomenal actor passed away in 2008 from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs at the age of 28.
This is the first look at the documentary which will feature footage never seen before as well as interviews with those that knew Heath best. The documentary will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23rd. It will then move into select theaters on May 3rd and air on Spike TV on May 17th.
The documentary will also be shown in an exhibition on Ledger’s life at the Western Australian Museum in October.
