Thunderbird Entertainment is pleased to be releasing I Am Heath Ledger in select theatres across Canada for a special event screening on May 4th. The film had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23rd, and takes an intimate look at the remarkable life and career of Heath Ledger, featuring interviews with Naomi Watts, Ben Mendelsohn, Ang Lee as well as his family and closest friends.

I Am Heath Ledger is a feature length documentary produced by Network Entertainment that celebrates the life of Heath Ledger: actor, artist and icon. The documentary provides a look at his life 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 Heath’s creative energy and unshakable willingness to take risks that instilled such an extraordinarily deep love and affection in the people that entered his life. His artistic nature and expression set him apart from the Hollywood mainstream, vaulted him to stardom and endeared him to the world.

Interviews with directors Derik Murray and Adrian Buitenhuis and screening links are available upon request.
