Heath Ledger died on Jan. 22, 2008. You probably remember where you were when you found out that one of Hollywood's brightest stars, who would go on to win a posthumous Academy Award for his work in The Dark Knight, had died of an accidental drug overdose. Nine years later, Spike TV has made a documentary about the late actor: I Am Heath Ledger. It's set to debut at the Tribeca Film Festival before airing in the US on May 17 (an air date for Australia is still TBC). The trailer is chock-full of personal footage of Heath, much of which he took himself. There are also interviews with his family and close friends, including Naomi Watts, Emile Hirsch, Ben Mendelsohn, and Ang Lee. While it'll probably break your heart all over again, the trailer is worth watching just to see Heath smile again and to remember what a true artist he was.
