“He wanted fame. And then when he got it, he didn’t want it”. These were the words of filmmaker Matt Amato about Heath Ledger in I Am: Heath Ledger documentary. The trailer was moving and utterly heartbreaking; you would need to get tissues before watching it.

Footage of the life of late actor Heath Ledger was turned into a documentary in honor of his would-have-been 38th birthday last August 4. The clips were shot by the actor himself, wherein the trailer shows Ledger holding a handheld camcorder.

In the video, model and Ledger’s friend Christina Cauchi, spoke about how the actor always had cameras around. “That’s the only way I think of him – with a camera in hand”, she laughed as she narrated. The documentary features never-before-seen video footage of the ‘Brokeback Mountain’ star, who was only 28 years old when he passed away.

The Academy Award winner’s death was caused by accidental overdose and cardiac arrest. In the CNN report on 2008, Ledger died of acute intoxication and abuse of prescription drugs and not of illegal drugs. “Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine,” New York medical examiners said.

Ledger talked about having trouble sleeping due to juggling-packed roles and schedules as he was playing back-to-back roles as the Joker and Bob Dylan. “Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night,” he said in an interview with The New York Times in November 2007. Ledger died on June 22, 2008.

A year after Ledger’s death, he won posthumous Oscar award for Best Supporting Actor for his character as The Joker in The Dark Knight. The award was accepted by his family on his behalf. “Even as a supporting actor, he will steal the whole show,” says Brokeback Mountain director Ang Lee.

The documentary will be released at Tribeca Film Festival on April 3. It will receive a theatrical release on May 3 and air on Spike TV on May 17.
