I Am Heath Ledger (Directors in Attendace!)
5:00pm - Sunday, May 21, 2017
Join us at the Rio Theatre for the poignant and moving documentary, I AM HEATH LEDGER, an intimate look at the life and career of an extraordinarily talented actor whose life was cut tragically short. This feature-length documentary portrait from Vancouver-based director Derik Murray (I AM CHRIS FARLEY) and Adrian Buitenhuis (HUANG'S WORLD) celebrates Ledger's short but remarkable life: as actor, artist and icon. I AM HEATH LEDGER provides an intimate look at through the lens of his own camera as he films and often performs in his own personal journey - extravagant in gesture and in action.
Directors Adrian Buitenhuis and Derik Murray in attendance for post-screening Q&A.
"That his gifts were beyond rare is inarguable by this point. I Am Heath Ledger makes the same case for his soul." (The Georgia Straight)
"A stirring tribute fittingly seen through the eyes of the artist himself." (The Playlist)
